Does your community have an infrastructure improvement project that needs to happen, but you aren’t sure how to proceed? Tech team meetings are a resource to get you headed in the right direction. A tech team meeting is a get-together between community representatives and program staff. The goal is to collaborate and solve infrastructure problems. Depending on your community’s current needs, various opportunities will be available. Tech Teams assist with:
• Understanding and prioritizing your overall infrastructure needs.
• Developing specific infrastructure projects.
• Developing funding strategies for specific infrastructure projects.

2019 Regional Training
The Public Works Board presented four free trainings across the state in April and May. These interactive trainings mixed concept presentation and group practice. They guided participants through effective infrastructure system management. Participants learned how asset management and value planning work together to create projects that fit their community. Local presenters also provided overviews of their asset management programs and their jurisdiction’s application of value planning.
