A SUPPLEMENT TO OKLAHOMA LIVING


DECEMBER 2016 | VOLUME 67 ISSUE 12 | PUBLISHED FOR MEMBERS OF TRI-COUNTY ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE LIVEWIRE


Co-op Cares Fundraiser TCEC employees donate to local food pantries


CEO VIEW


You Asked, We Listened By Zac Perkins


Members have often asked us for a standard date by which to pay their electric bill, which is due upon receipt according to our Rules and Regulations.


TCEC has four billing cycles. Until recently, the billing and past due dates for each cycle changed every month.


Starting in August with our conversion to a new billing system, those dates are now static and will no longer change. We still have four bill cycles but they have standard monthly dates.


Cycle Billing Date Past Due 1 2 3 4


7


14 21 28


26 3


10 17


In addition to making it easier for our members to remember when their bill is due, having static billing dates is better administratively as it streamlines planning and processes.


We value your feedback, you asked and we listened. n


Cimarron County Food pantry donation presentation

TCEC employees raised funds during the annual Co-op Cares Food Drive for local community food pantries. The cooperative matched the funds raised by employees for a total of $1,960 this year. Four food pantries in local communities will each receive $490.


“The Cimarron County Food Pantry operates on donations only,” said Jana Fowler, food pantry coordinator. “The food pantry receives USDA commodities, but these are to help supplement, not be the main source of the food given out. We average 100 to 110 families in need a month. We want to thank TCEC and its employees for giving to our community.”


She said the food pantry has provided 177,060 pounds of food this year to families in Cimarron County communities.


TCEC Member Solutions Vice President Chris Purdy said, “‘Concern for Community’ is one of our seven cooperative principles. Our employees gave generously this year to help those in need.”


Other local food pantries receiving funds this year are in Beaver and Guymon, Oklahoma, and Elkhart, Kansas.
