Connection to Council Goal:
Complete Water Policy
Effective governance
Has There Been Previous Council Decision on This:
City Council has reviewed and provided staff direction and comments on each of the water policies over numerous meetings since 2012.  City Council used the Water Commission's policy document they adopted on November 15, 2012 as the basis for these policies. 
Options and Alternatives:
Adopt the Principles of Sound Water Management - Water Policies as written or modify their language or remand the policies back to staff to rewrite some or all of the policy language for future Council consideration.

Staff has worked with the Water Commission to define the concepts and agreed upon the language for each policy since 2008.  At their November 15, 2012 Commission meeting, they approved the initial policy document and recommended staff to bring the policies forward to City Council for your consideration and adoption.
Community Benefits and Considerations:
Having an adopted set of water policies that are deliberative and well thought-out to guide the Utilities Division in the management, use and strategic planning of water, wastewater, reclaimed water and stormwater within the City of Flagstaff will be a great community benefit.
Community Involvement:
Collaborate.  The community has had numerous opportunities to provide input during the Water Commission and City Council meetings since 2008.
