The fifth meeting of a steering committee that will make recommendations on how best to cost-effectively serve Danville’s electric customers will be held at 4 p.m. Monday, Jan. 5, in the City Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building.
The meeting is open to the public. It also will be taped for later broadcast on River City TV.
The committee consists of three members from the Danville Utility Commission – Bill Donohue, Phillip Smith and Jim Turpin – and three members of City Council – John Gilstrap, Gary Miller and Fred Shanks. Smith is chairing the committee.
Recommendations will be provided to the full City Council on short- and long-term actions to reliably deliver electricity at competitive rates to all customer classes over the long term. The recommendations could involve adjusting service boundaries, offering customer choice of power suppliers, modifying rate structures, expanding privatization of operations, installing electric power generation facilities locally, using a combination of these and other measures, or selling the electric utility.
