Lindsey will represent PEC
Jim Lindsey of Cedar Park will represent the Pedemales Electric Cooperative, Inc. as its voting delegate to the annual convention of the Texas Electric Cooperative Assn.
All directors of the PEC plan to attend the late July convention, and board president W. W. “Bud” Burnett will serve as alternate delegate.
Burnett was re-elected president of the board at an organizational meeting held earlier this month. M. C. Winters was elected to serve another year as vice-president and secretary-treasurer 0. C. Harmon will also serve another term in that office.
At the regular monthly board meeting held Monday in Johnson City, directors heard a report from independent auditor John Drew. The PEC is required by law to undergo an outside audit annually.
“We received a very favorable report from the auditor,” said PEC spokesman Bill Cunningham, who added that a line-by-line examination of the cooperative’s budget caused the Monday meeting to be very lengthy.
The board also received a report from its internal audit committee
headed by Ralph Giesecke of Marble Falls The committee’s assignment was to perform the annual internal audit.
“Giesecke. a bank president, was amazed by our internal controls,” Cunninghham said of theh audit.
In other business, the directors accepted 1.453 new members into the cooperative and approved purchase orders in the amount of $1,907,726.13. They also approved for payment to the Lower Colorado River Authority, under protest as usual, the June power bill of $4,995,916.22 for 118,557,745 kilowatt hours of power. This compares to the June 1984 bill of $4,529.851.96 for 105.949.105 KWH.
General Manager Bennie Fuelberg was authorized to negotiate for purchase of five acres of land in the Dripping Springs area for construction of a new service center. Presently, that area is served by the Kyle-Buda service center.
The next meeting of the board will be held on the third Monday in August at 2 pm at the cooperative’s headquarters in Johnson City.
The PEC provides electric service to the entire Canyon I,ake area of Comal County.
