We are a customer-based, performance-driven, results-oriented organization, focused on finding the answer, solving the problem, and achieving positive outcomes.  We partner with the Chico community, the California regional community, and the global community, to improve our world.  We are trustworthy stewards of the public's resources.  We constantly look for better, faster, and smarter ways to improve efficiency.  We strive for exceptional customer service; through innovation, sound planning, and in some cases by learning from mistakes.  We welcome diversity in our community and our work place.  We conduct our work with dignity, respect, and open communication; to our community, to our customers, and to one another.  We are accountable for our performance, the success of our organization, and we are recognized for our achievements. Chico, a safe place to raise a family, an ideal location for business, and a premier place to live.
