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.
Last week, voters re-elected Tom Dowd and Tim Cavanaugh to the board. Also, Gwen Howard was elected to the board for the first time and will begin her term in January 2015. She previously served eight years (2004-2012) as a Nebraska state senator in the Legislature’s 9th District. Chairperson Amy Lindsay did not seek reelection. Her term will conclude in 2014.
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 http://www.mudomaha.com/about-us/board-meetings prior to the meetings and approved documents are posted after the meetings.
Information about board members, including photos and contact information, can be found on our website under the “About Us” tab at: http://www.mudomaha.com/about-us/board-directors.
