April 2020 – There’s a new operator in LA
F&V Operations and Resource Management, Inc (FVOP) is the new contract operator for the LASA, starting April 1. The partnership ushers in a new era of customer service for water and sewer users. FVOP’s Group Manager Blair Selover announced the new team that is led by Operator-in-Charge Jerry Livernois. “We’re excited about this opportunity and look forward to providing great customer service and efficient and enhanced operations procedures that extend the useful life of the LASA utilities,” Selover said. “The staff is quickly learning your system operations and LASA has been very helpful prior to starting this transition period.” FVOP is a subsidiary of Fleis & VandenBrink (F&V) and provides operations assistance, management and training throughout Michigan and Indiana for municipal, industrial and environmental systems. FVOP, which started in 2011, supports its staff through training and on-going certifications to enhance their professional development and keep up with the ever-changing state and federal regulations. It currently has 65 employees and is headquartered in Grand Rapids.
 
FVOP COVID 19 UPDATE
To all Utility customers:
FVOP plays a vital health role for you and downtime is not an option. We are reaching out to you today to let you know that FVOP is taking action to ensure our ability to respond to emergencies during this Coronavirus pandemic. We want to assure you that we will provide fast responses in emergencies and that skilled staff will be available 24-7, 365 days year.
 
We are also taking some additional actions during the Coronavirus pandemic.
  1. We have temporarily stopped entering residential homes for non-emergency needs such as water meter replacement, installations, reads and repairs to minimize the spread to our healthy staff.
  2. Our water and wastewater plants will no longer accept visits from non-essential personnel. Gates and doors will be locked.
  3. We have done contingency planning in the event that several of our Operations staff are away from work due to the pandemic. We will maintain critical operations and use staff from other parts of our firm or subcontract work if necessary. In the event this happens, we appreciate your patience as we work through any issues that may arise.
If you have additional concerns, contact Jerry Livernois, Operator-in-Charge, or any of the other operators.

The Emergency number will be changing. LASA will keep the old number for a year and create a message on the old number referring to the new emergency number as soon as the new number is available. Refer to this website for more info/updates as they become available.
 
Mar 2020 - Water meter replacement plan is under development. Expect to see meter replacement in 2020. The program will be funded by LASA and costs will be recovered by the new meter readings.
