FMPA Elects 2007-2008 Executive Committee Officers
ORLANDO, Fla., July 12, 2007 — Members of the Florida Municipal Power Agency (FMPA) elected officers today at an organizational meeting of the newly reconstituted Executive Committee.
FMPA’s Executive Committee Chairperson for 2007-2008 will be Rebecca Mattey, Director of Ocala Electric Utility. Previously, Mattey served as FMPA’s All-Requirements Project chairperson for a year-and-a-half.
Kevin McCarthy, Utilities Director for the city of Clewiston, was elected Vice Chairman. McCarthy also serves as Treasurer of FMPA’s Board of Directors, a position he has held since 2006.
Under the new governance structure approved May 28, FMPA’s Executive Committee includes only appointed representatives from each member of FMPA’s All-Requirements Project, rather than being an elected body. The changes give the Executive Committee power to independently govern and manage the business affairs of the All-Requirements Project.
Members of FMPA approved the governance changes to enhance the efficiency of the Agency’s decision-making process.
FMPA’s All-Requirements Project provides all the wholesale power needs of 15 Florida cities, including Bushnell, Clewiston, Fort Meade, Fort Pierce, Green Cove Springs, Town of Havana, Jacksonville Beach, Key West, Kissimmee, Lake Worth, Leesburg, Newberry, Ocala, Starke and Vero Beach. All-Requirements enables municipal utilities of all sizes to become owners—not just customers—of an efficient statewide power system.
