Notice to Members - Special Meeting June 27, 9 am, at Portland
Notice to Members of HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative
A Special Member Meeting is set for June 27, 9 a.m., at the Cooperative’s Portland office
The board of directors will consider several changes to the cooperative’s rates and tariffs at its meeting on June 27, 2016, to be held at the cooperative office at 7973 Grand River Avenue, Portland, MI. The meeting will start at 9 a.m. and is open to all members of HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative.
The session will begin with an opportunity for members to provide direct input to the board of directors, without filing a formal request under the cooperative policy. Members are asked to come to the lobby by 9 a.m. and request to speak to the board; staff will direct interested members to the meeting room. Time constraints on each member’s comments will be at the discretion of the board president, but members are asked to keep comments to less than five minutes.
The following items will be considered:
1) Revise the cooperative’s electric rates to meet current and future financial needs, based on an independent Cost of Service study.
2) Reconcile the 2015 Power Supply Cost Recovery Factor collections. The Power Supply Cost Recovery Factor is applied to Tri-County Electric Cooperative’s retail member-customers’ monthly kilowatt-hour use. It represents the fluctuating costs of the power supply, as established by the cooperative in conjunction with Wolverine Power Cooperative. The factor is established annually and reviewed monthly.
3) Discuss participation in the State of Michigan’s Low Income Energy Assistance program at the cost of a surcharge, to be determined by the state, on each residential customer’s monthly energy bill.
Notice of changes or additions to the cooperative’s rates or service rules shall be sent to all members, as required by P.A. 167, by publication in Michigan Country Lines at least 30 days prior to their effective date.
Participation: Any interested member may attend and participate. The location of the board meeting site is accessible, including handicapped parking. Persons needing any accommodation to participate should contact HomeWorks Tri-County Electric at 800-562-8232 a week in advance to request mobility, visual, hearing or other assistance.
