These tasks go hand and hand with the City Public Works Drainage Division which administrates permits, and is responsible for the implementation and the execution of stormwater best management practices through the use of various resources such as personnel, and medium and heavy equipment. Public Works maintains more than 350 miles of storm sewer drainage system within the City and approximately 150 miles of drainage ditches and thousands of storm water inlets. Public Works crews work continually throughout the year removing trash and debris, mowing drainage ditches, vacuuming stormwater inlets, as well as other tasks to maintain a healthy drainage infrastructure. Unfortunately, the City is faced with the challenges of sustaining its extensive MS4 program and existing drainage infrastructure due to the lack of additional financial resources. Certain sections of the City’s drainage system are more than 50 years old and deteriorating. As the City continues to grow and expand, the need for repairs, retrofitting and maintaining the City’s existing infrastructure is as equally important as creating new capital projects.
As a group, team A collectively provided input and decisions on our MSRP in order to increase sales and attempt to gain market shares. Thus we wanted to understand the price sensitivity of the different target markets to set the appropriate price (Winer & Dhar, 2016, p. 248). We carefully reviewed the MSRP performance summary provided, starting with the first period, comparing it to the average retail price by way of the channel report (ARPCR). The original price for Allround was $5.29. At that time we were $.40 higher in price than our competition however the team felt that with the $.50 coupon discount we were offering, we would fall in line with other over-the-counter Besthelp who was our immediate

After reading the case study Welcome to the new town manager, by Mary Jane Kuffner Hirt, I established three major problems the community of Opportunity needed to correct. These problems involved the water & sewer system, the balancing budget, & the pay-as-you-go method. The city manager, Jennifer Holbrook, must implement strategies that would correct these problems quickly.
Ontario has its own creative and effective strategies to combat climate change. One of Ontario’s goal is a low-carbon future. To accomplish this the province started making carbon reductions in 1990 and are on track to reduce carbon emissions by 15% in 2020, 37 per cent in 2030 and 80 per cent in 2050 (Climate Change Action Plan, 2017). Ontario’s target of reducing emissions by 6% was met on schedule in 2014 (Climate Change Action Plan, 2017). One of the reasons this has been made possible is because of Ontario’s investment in carbon reduction. For example, in 2015 Ontario committed $325-million payment to Ontario’s Green Investment Fund to support programs that help households and businesses implement
This report demonstrates the current financial situation for the Stratton Township Park and makes recommendations for the annual program budget for the next fiscal year. We first show the current annual budget program, indicating line-item details for each function by account and summarizing the park budget as a whole. Second, we find the break-even points for the golf course green fee and the pool admission to determine what the park would have to charge in order to cover expenses of the these operations. Next, we calculate the marginal revenues and expenses to determine the impact of shutting down certain programs in the park. Lastly, this report prepares the revised budget for the upcoming fiscal year based on our recommendations.

What would happen if Z CORP executives took David's suggestion and presented their problem to the city (if it is a problem)? Would city bureaucrats spot Z CORP's financial difficulties and attempt to work out a reasonable agreement with Z CORP? If Z CORP executives knew the city would be willing to do an agreement - perhaps by providing Z CORP added tax relief - they would not hesitate with David's suggestion. It is unknown to how the city of Gilbane would respond to this situation, but assumptions as to how the city would react can have a great influence on an executive's position on what should be done.
