District Meetings Include Facts About Consolidation


Hear what your co-op leaders have to say, ask questions and learn what consolidation means for you.


f you have questions about the possible Caddo-Kiwash consolidation, please plan on attending one of three special co-op meetings taking place this month.


I


Typically held for members residing in a particular district to elect their Kiwash Electric trustee, this year the co-op is opening these district meetings to all members.


“District meetings provide an excellent forum to discuss important co-op issues with our members. The possible consolidation with Caddo Electric is certainly at the top of the list,” said Dennis Krueger, Kiwash Electric general manager.


The meetings will take place in Kiwash Districts 3, 4 and 5 on the following dates.


The District 3 meeting will be held on Monday, July 13 at 7 pm at The Corner in Corn. Members in District 3 are represented by Jack Sawatzky of Cordell.


District 4 will meet on Tuesday, July 14 at 7 pm in Blair Hall in Weatherford. Blair Hall is located in Weatherford’s City Hall building. Marvin Hankins of Weatherford serves as trustee for District 4.


District 5 meets on Thursday July 16 at 7 pm at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lone Wolf. Incumbent trustee for District 5 is John Schaufele of Lone Wolf.


The election of trustees is restricted district members only. Immediately following the election, Kiwash trustees and management will discuss the details of the possible consolidation with members, sharing facts and figures they have obtained after nearly a year of research. Members are encouraged to voice their questions and concerns during these meetings.


“Consolidating into one cooperative will provide members of both co-ops with greater financial stability in the future, but this is a decision that each member must make for themselves.”


—DENNIS KREUGER, GENERAL MANAGER KIWASH ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE


Krueger pointed out that it is important that co-op members understand how consolidation would affect their rates. Preliminary studies show that the savings realized through consolidation would shield members from power cost increases of up to 16 percent over the next five years.


“Consolidating Caddo Electric and Kiwash Electric into one cooperative will provide members of both co-ops with greater financial stability in the future,” Krueger said. “But this is a decision that each member must make for themselves.”


Kiwash Electric members will vote on the question of consolidation at the Kiwash Electric Annual Meeting on August 10. Watch your newsletter for more details, or visit www.caddokiwashtogether.com.
