The Kerrville Public Utility Board (KPUB) is pleased to announce the appointment of two new members to its board of trustees. Last week, the utility board appointed Mayor Judy Eychner and Glenn Andrew to serve as trustees during KPUB’s May board meeting.
Mayor Eychner has served for four years on the Kerrville City Council and was appointed as Mayor of Kerrville this month. She is presently a member of the board of directors for the Doyle Community Center and city council liaison to the Kerrville-Kerr County Municipal Airport. Her past community service has included serving on the board of directors for Kerr County Habitat for Humanity, Dietert Center, City Zoning Board of Adjustments and the Kerr County Appraisal Board.
“I have been a KPUB customer myself for over 30 years and am so appreciative of the reliable service they consistently provide to our community,” said Mayor Eychner. “Kerrville is very fortunate to have a locally-controlled, not-for-profit electric utility company, and I look forward to serving on the board of trustees.”
Andrews has served the Kerrville community in various capacities, including a one-year term on the Kerrville City Council, the boards of Peterson Health Foundation and Habitat for Humanity, as well as numerous other local committees.
“I am honored to have been appointed to the KPUB Board of Trustees and thankful for the community’s trust in me to serve in this capacity,” said Glenn Andrew. “It is my goal to facilitate the continued delivery of highly reliable power at a competitive rate while ensuring a continued safe and competitive workplace for KPUB’s exceptional employees.”
KPUB is overseen by a five-member board of trustees who are appointed by the Kerrville City Council and serve without compensation. The trustees are responsible to the City of Kerrville for the management and control of the system.
KPUB was formed after a vote by the citizens of Kerrville and the issuance of $29.5 million in bonds to purchase the system in 1987. This December will mark 35 years of KPUB being a community-owned utility company.
The Kerrville Public Utility Board (KPUB) was acquired by the City of Kerrville in 1987. KPUB serves approximately 23,850 customers throughout 146 square mile service area, including Kerrville, Center Point, Ingram, Hunt, and surrounding areas in Kerr County.
KPUB is a responsive and efficient locally-owned provider of reliable, high-quality utility service at the lowest responsible price.
KPUB Board of Trustee Members: Chairman, Mark Cowden; Vice Chairman, Larry Howard; Secretary, Bill Thomas; Treasurer, Glenn Andrew; and Mayor of Kerrville, Judy Eychner.
