Transparency, accountability and environmental stewardship are core values that are essential to the attainment of our mission. Through strategic partnerships with a variety of organizations and schools, we engage our customers and the general public. Our goal: educate and inform, letting our stakeholders know who we are, what we do, how we manage resources and why what we do is important to the health and vitality of our region.

Our Trustees recognize that public funds must be spent only for public purposes pursuant to Ohio law. Our Public Purpose policy establishes guidelines for expenditures that meet the following requirements:

  • Directly relate to the Sewer District’s core functions and strategic goals and objectives.
  • Required for the general good of ratepayers and citizens of the region.
  • Support the Sewer District’s mission.
  • Promote the efficient and effective administration of its operations, programs and employees.

The Policy is intended to comply with Ohio Auditor of State guidance on certain categories of expenditures set forth in the Policy. The complete policy is available for download at
