The Board of Public Works held its regular meeting Monday, Feb. 18 in the City Council’s chamber. The following items are what the Board has in the works.
The electric retail rates to customers were discussed. It was concluded that rate structure changes are expected in the coming months. This restructuring will result from billing determinant changes from the Missouri Public Energy Pool, reduction of capacity credits, an increased peak demand set in August and an increase in transmission changes.
Operational updates were discussed for the upcoming spring season. It was indicated that plant personnel are making plans for oil cooler replacement at the Macon Energy Center later this spring, completion of heating improvements to the 404 E. Vine Street facility, and staff are in the final stages of completion for the GIS mapping of the primary electric infrastructure.
As far as underground facilities, crews have performed water valve operation, repaired five water services plus one main repair, and made several concrete pours, which was the cause of the road closing on Rollins between Union and Vine Street.
It was also discussed that a portion of the materials for the discharge metering replacement project at the water treatment plant has arrived.
The next meeting will be Monday, March 8 at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council’s Chamber
