02/15/2006 ~ Keys Energy Services (KEYS) has an opening on its Advisory Committee for District Four, which serves Cudjoe Key to the Torch Keys.

Advisory Committee applications are available in the main lobby of KEYS Service building, 1001 James Street, and must be completed and returned by Noon on Wednesday, March 1st. Applicants for the District Four seat must reside within the district (Cudjoe Key to the Torch Keys).

In 1998 the Utility Board of the City of Key West approved the creation of a five-member Advisory Committee, which was designed to provide the Board and KEYS staff with community input on various issues related to KEYS including generation, distribution, finance, customer service, and new ventures.

The Committee promotes public access to information on KEYS facilities, services, policies, and programs concerning energy, and considers the future energy needs of the community. The Committee also assists KEYS staff by suggesting and reviewing programs and services.

The Advisory Committee includes five members, the Utility Board Chairman and two KEYS staff members. Community members represent five districts: Key West to Stock Island (District 1); Key Haven to Big Coppitt (District 2); Shark Key to Sugarloaf Key (District 3); Cudjoe Key to the Torch Keys (District 4); and Big Pine Key to Seven-Mile Bridge (District 5).

Currently serving on the Advisory Committee are: Sandra Walters (District 3), Chairperson; Henry B. Hamilton (District 2); and Don Way (District 5). The District One representative will be appointed at the February 22nd Utility Board meeting to fill the seat vacated when Charles A. Bradford, Jr., then serving as the District One representative, was appointed to the Utility Board. The District Four seat was held by Paul Marotte who resigned from the committee citing the commitment of time and energy needed to operate his electrical contracting business in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane season. The District Four representative will be appointed at the March 8th Utility Board meeting.
