Confidential Position Profile
Title: Chief Executive Officer
On June 12, 2015, leases of the regional water and sewerage facilities between the City of Detroit and the GLWA were approved and executed. GLWA will assume management and operational responsibility for the current Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) regional system upon the completion of a number of condition precedents to the GLWA's Effective Date. Detroit will lease to GLWA approximately 400 miles of regional water mains and 360 miles of regional sewer pipes, five water filtration plants, the Jefferson Avenue Sewage Treatment Plant, and a number of retention basins and pump stations. In exchange, GLWA will allocate $50 million per year of GLWA system revenue requirements to a fund to be used by the City of Detroit to pay for Detroit local system improvements, for debt service on bonds issued to fund Detroit local system improvements, or for the City's share of debt service incurred to fund regional system improvements
As part of this agreement, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) will retain responsibility for retail water and sewer service delivery in Detroit and serve as the GLWA's Agent for Detroit retail rate setting, customer billing and collections. Similarly, GLWA's wholesale customers will retain responsibility for managing and operating their own local water/sewer systems and the billing and collections systems for their residents.
DWSD employs approximately 1,400 people today and it is anticipated that some of these people will stay with DWSD and others will be offered employment with GLWA. In this context, it is noteworthy that recent DWSD leadership has reduced staffing levels from 2,102 in 2011 to 1,358 in 2015 as part of a continuing optimization program. Staffing reductions, effected largely through attrition, have been accomplished with implementation of revised job classifications and requirements, staff training, and revised work rules. DWSD has executed Collective bargaining Agreements with nine (9) bargaining units; the minority of remaining represented employees work under City Employment Terms (CETs).
GLWA will be assigned approximately $5.8 billion of outstanding indebtedness of which approximately $ 0.5 billion are State Revolving Fund loans. The remaining senior and subordinate revenue bond debt is currently rated: BBB+ by S&P, Ba2 by Moody's, and BBB-/BB+ by Fitch. One of the condition precedents to the Effective Date of the Authority is a ratings confirmation at levels at least as high as those of the current DWSD bonds.
DWSD had an extensive history of regulatory non-compliance, litigation, and financial challenges. Issues related to regulatory noncompliance involved 37 years of federal district court oversight due to alleged violations of the Clean Water Act. Litigation included challenges to DWSD's water and sewer rates charged to wholesale customers. Financial challenges have included, among other things, significant write-offs due to troubled capital projects and financial transactions. In 2011, these challenges precipitated federal district court orders to establish DWSD's Purchasing, Human Resource, Law and Finance divisions, independent from the City of Detroit.
Since 2011, the Department's performance with respect to these most acute challenges has improved markedly. Regulatory compliance is now a fundamental part of DWSD operations. Further improvements are anticipated with the completion in 2016 of a biosolids management facility under a design-build-operate contract. The Department has a successful wholesale customer outreach program through which capital planning; budgeting and rate setting are accomplished through a collaborative process, setting aside years of acrimonious litigation. Independent projections of financial performance, conducted in conjunction with the GLWA lease negotiation process, indicate the GLWA will have adequate resources to meet its all its obligations, including those required under the GLWA –City of Detroit lease and arising out of the City's bankruptcy Plan of Adjustment.
THE GLWA CEO position represents a unique opportunity to advance the economic recovery of the southeastern Michigan region by helping provide effective, efficient water and sewerage services, now under a new regional governance structure.
The ongoing responsibilities include the following:
