This unique program was created to foster informed, effective, and inspired community leadership. It is taught by leaders and employees of city government and authorities to share what services, operations, and resources the City provides in and for our communities; including tours, hands-on demonstrations, and informational activities that give participants an insider view of how the City of Pittsburgh operates.
The class usually meets at our Water Treatment Plant in Aspinwall for a tour and demos, but as a precaution during Covid, the class switched to a virtual platform. It was still a successful and engaging evening, and we hope to return to the full on-site experience in 2021!
Chief Executive Officer Will Pickering introduced our executive staff, which included Diector of Finance, Ed Barca; Director of Engineering and Constrcution, Barry King; Director of Administration, Julie Quigley. The team presented information on the history of the Authority, capital improvement projects, finance and rates, as well as our extensive Customer Assistance Programs and updated billing and payment platforms.
