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

In April, the Board voted to approve changes to the Board bylaws and policy changes.  These changes establish a different chair for the Utilities Board, other than the President of City Council. The Board took nominations, voted and named Merv Bennett as the new Utilities Board Chair and Andy Pico as the new Vice Chair.

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 Merv Bennett

Vice Chair Andy Pico

Larry Bagley

Helen Collins

Jill Gaebler

Keith King

Val Snider

The Utilities Board meets the Wednesday between City Council meetings (which are the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month) at 1 p.m. in the Blue River Board Room on the fifth floor of the South Tower in the Plaza of the Rockies (121 S. Tejon Street).
