MLGW Board elects new chair
January 3, 2008
The MLGW Board of Commissioners Thursday unanimously elected Commissioners V. Lynn Evans and William Taylor as chairman and vice chairman, respectively, for 2008-2009.

Evans, who previously served as vice-chairman, assumed the chairmanship, a two-year term, from Commissioner Rick Masson, whom Evans lauded for his leadership.

About her election, Evans said: “I’m excited about the possibilities and the opportunities we’ll meet together in the years to come. Our goal will be to remain focused on reliable service delivery in a cost-effective manner with an emphasis on safety and fairness for all employees.”

The next board meeting is scheduled for Jan. 17 at 1:30 p.m. in MLGW Administration Building. The President’s Briefing has been incorporated into the regular meeting. Board meetings are open to the public.

MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 420,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County. A 2007 survey of large metropolitan areas showed that MLGW has the sixth lowest combined rates in the nation.
