UTILITY BOARD APPROVES ELECTION CHANGES

11/17/2016 ~ The Utility Board approved changes to its Enabling Act at their regular meeting on Wednesday, November 16th, regarding the election of Board members.

The approved changes include:

- A Utility Board consisting of five-members, with three members having residency requirements in the City of Key West (precincts 1-10) and two members having residency requirements in unincorporated Monroe County from Stock Island to the north easternmost end of the Seven-Mile Bridge (precincts 11-17). Currently the five-member Utility Board can only be comprised of residents of the City of Key West.

- A Utility Board elected by all voters from Key West to the north easternmost end of the Seven-Mile Bridge (precincts 1 – 17). Currently the Utility Board is elected only by residents of the City of Key West.

The changes will require ratification by the Florida State Legislature. Keys Energy Services will work with Representative Holly Raschein to submit the changes with the intention that the amendment will be introduced into Legislation during the 2017 session. Once ratified by the Legislature, the changes will take place with the 2018 and 2020 election cycles.
