FELPS’ McMillan to retire in January
FLORESVILLE -- David McMillan, who has served as the general manager of the Floresville Electric Light & Power System (FELPS) for 16 years, is retiring Jan. 31, 2013. He made the announcement during the May 30 meeting of the FELPS board of trustees.
McMillan said after the meeting that the board:
•Combined FELPS’ secretary and treasurer positions. Marcy Jacobs, who currently serves as the utility’s manager of financial services, also will assume the duties of the assistant secretary, who is retiring.
•Appointed Assistant General Manager Kyle Dicke to FELPS’ Pension Committee.
•Authorized negotiation of a contract for professional services with one of two finalists selected from five firms which responded to a request for proposal to aid McMillan and Dicke in developing formal job descriptions, salary ranges based on industry and area norms, and organization tables, and ensuring compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act.
•Voted to continue negotiations with CPS Energy, Bryan Texas Utilities, and Garland Power & Light, which are being considered as potential vendors for FELPS’ wholesale power supply agreement. A final decision, which could include two service providers, will be made before Oct. 31.
Also during the meeting, McMillan informed the board that the purchased-power adjustment on bills mailed May 25 reflects a charge of $18.40 per 1,000 kilowatt-hours. This should add $25.76 to the average residential electric bill, he said.
