Positive Utility Report Reveals Notices Sent to Eleven Employees


In an effort to save money at City Water Light and Power, the utility is working with several unions to find furlough days or face layoffs.

 

Chief Engineer Eric Hobbie said that no one has been laid off but eleven workers within the utility have received notices.  

 

Hobbie says that a few more unions representing utility employees are working out with one going to arbitration.

 

Aldermen Kris Theilen and Tim Griffin said they are receiving a flood of phone calls with employees expressing uncertainty about their jobs.

 

Mayor Mike Houston says that rumors get started up and spread to departments that have nothing to do with the utility.

 

Meanwhile, Hobbie says that despite the long hot summer, the utility not only made money on retail sales for both the water and electric division but the electric side didn’t even come close to peak usage.
