November 18, 2010

On November 10, 2010, at the monthly Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (SMMPA) board meeting, New Prague Public Works Director Dennis Seurer was re-elected to President of the SMMPA board of directors. Mr. Richard Kittelson, General Manager, Blooming Prairie Public Utilities, was elected to Vice President; Mr. Thomas Koeritz, Assistant Finance Director, Fairmont Public Utilities, was re-elected to Secretary and Mr. Lewis Giesking, Public Works Director, Saint Peter Municipal Utilities, was elected to Treasurer.

Mr. Seurer said, “The economy was challenging in our state and across our nation.  But the board had SMMPA well positioned.  Together the board and the SMMPA team worked hard to address successfully the challenges.  As a result of this hard work and success, the board is confident going into 2011 that there will be no need for a rate increase.”   

SMMPA’s mission is to provide its 18 municipal Members with reliable, reasonably priced electricity and related services in an environmentally responsible manner now and well into the future.  “I’m proud to play a part in helping SMMPA achieve its mission,” added Mr. Seurer.
