The Grays Harbor PUD Board of Commissioners has found 13 words that capture the goal of the District and will be the core of the district’s operations and activities. On Monday evening, the board adopted a resolution officially recognizing the statement: “Serve our community with high value utility services at the lowest practical cost” as the district’s mission statement.
“A mission statement captures the purpose of an organization,” said Commission President Russ Skolrood. “When you strip away everything else this is what the PUD is here to do. It’s not a long explanation or an overly detailed description; it is a statement of what we provide to the customers we were elected and hired to serve.”
The statement will be at the heart of PUD strategy for years to come and acknowledges the district’s service to its customer-owners, the quality of the power and telecommunications services it provides, and the responsibility to accomplish it all at a practical price.
“This is one of those moments when customers and employees alike can be proud,” said PUD General Manager Dave Ward. “This statement points the Grays Harbor PUD toward a bright future.”
