Municipal solid waste managers face an urgent need to review disaster plans as well as the myriad of other management plans for health, safety and welfare of employees and the service area. Other planning areas include financial and capital improvements. The planning process is an important management tool. The evaluation of management is one of the factors included in the assignment of municipal credit ratings. This paper profiles how Fitch Ratings incorporates management in their credit analysis and provides key points for solid waste managers to consider as they prepare or refresh plans.
