Long Term Financial Planning + Policies

Over the past few years, the Tahoe City Public Utility District (TCPUD) has undergone significant changes in operations which have substantial and foreseeable financial impacts. The TCPUD Board of Directors responded in August 2018 by announcing its intent to develop and implement Long-Term Financial Planning (LTFP) through a process that emphasizes transparency, accountability and feasibility.


The LTFP will culminate in a Strategic Document that ensures TCPUD is financially prepared to fulfill our Mission, accomplish our Strategic Initiatives identified in the 2016-2019 Strategic Plan, and develop a strategy to secure our financial sustainability into the future. TCPUD has retained HDR Engineering, Inc. (HDR) to facilitate the LTFP process which includes developing a long-term service vision, updating and crafting financial policies, improving a financial forecasting model.


Projected for completion in 2020, the planning process will include a series of public Board meetings and presentations to help understand the TCPUD’s current financial position, capital infrastructure needs, project commitments and goals, and existing financial policies.


Approved policies are posted on this website as they are approved by the TCPUD Board of Directors.
