SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND OF SUBJECT MATTER:

The 2019 Operating Budget includes funds for electrical payments to Xcel Energy and United Power for electricity used at Town facilities. Staff prepares “blanket purchase orders” at the beginning of the year to pay for these recurring services. The Town worked with Xcel to group like locations together while United Power’s billing is individual to each location. While each location itself may have a lower than $25,000 monthly average; one invoice may be collectively higher than the $25,000 allotment, therefore requires Board approval.  Staff continues to look for and implement improvements to reduce electrical costs overall at each facility. Below is the actual monthly costs for January - October 2018.
