The City Council, through its role as the Utilities Board governs the management and operations of the Utilities through established written policies.

According to bylaws and policies, the Board nominates and votes to establish a different chair for the Utilities Board, other than the President of City Council. Having a separate Utilities Board chair from the council president enables the Board chair to:

  • Focus on one organization
  • Spend more time to become knowledgeable about the complex utilities industry and organization
  • Further align the Utilities Board, Board committees and staff
  • Be more focused on interaction with citizen-owners and customers specifically on utilities concerns

The Utilities Board:

Chair Andy Pico

Vice Chair Tom Strand

Larry Bagley

Merv Bennett

Helen Collins

Jill Gaebler

Keith King

Don Knight

Bill Murray
