For a small, predictable monthly fee, we serve as your part time General Manager providing regular, as-needed and on-call management services.  This service is perfect for the Board managed District that needs regular management guidance and oversight, but cannot afford to pay a full time, or part time qualified manager.   Services include everything from helping the Board set priorities, permit or regulatory compliance, agenda preparation and meeting management, to research and reporting, project alternatives analysis, Brown Act guidance, revenue measure preparation, budgeting, fundraising, communication plans, etc.
