Utility Policy Committee

Next date: Thursday, October 12, 2023 | 08:30 AM to 10:30 AM

Kalamazoo's water system serves many of the areas surrounding townships and villages in addition to residents within the City. The Water Service Agreement between these communities establishes a Utility Policy Committee (UPC), which consists of seven members. Three are appointed by the City of Kalamazoo and four are appointed from the other stakeholder communities. The UPC meets with City of Kalamazoo officials, including the City Manager (or their designee) and the Public Services Director, to review and discuss matters affecting the water system, including operations and maintenance, financial policy, utility rates, and capital planning. The committee must meet a minimum of four times per year, once per quarter.
