In 1924 the residents of Colorado Springs voted to create a four-service public utility.
As a municipally owned utility, decisions about the organization and your service are made here in Colorado Springs, not by the Public Utilities Commission in Denver or at an out-of-state corporate headquarters.
Today, Colorado Springs City Council -- through its role as the Utilities Board -- governs the management and operations of Colorado Springs Utilities through established written policies. The Board nominates and votes for a Utilities Board chair, separate from the President of City Council.
The Utilities Board is reviewing the Governance Structure and Processes to determine if a change could benefit the citizen-owners and the utility. Input from the community is desired and meetings are already scheduled through June.
