The meeting was taped and is airing daily on River City TV, which can be viewed on Comcast cable channel 10, Gamewood cable channel 122 or

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.
