As a political subdivision of the State of Nebraska, the Metropolitan Utilities District is governed by a board of seven directors, elected by our customer-owners. Board members serve six-year terms.
The board meets monthly at the District’s downtown headquarters at 1723 Harney Street unless otherwise noted. All meetings are open to the public and advertised on our website and in the Omaha World-Herald. Draft agendas and memos are posted on our website at board meetings prior to the meetings and approved documents are posted after the meetings.
Committee meetings are generally held the first Wednesday of the month starting at 8:15 a.m. During these public meetings, the board members ask questions and discuss items on the agenda with the District’s management team. The board acts on items at the regular board meeting that follows at 9:00 a.m.
The board has 10 standing committees, including:
- Construction and Operations;
- Accounts, Expenditures, Finance and Rates;
- Judiciary and Legislative;
- Services and Extensions;
- Marketing/Consumer Information;
- Insurance and Pensions;
- Security and Safety;
- Audit; and
