Construction on the Pedernales Electric Cooperative's new Northwest Operations Center in Marble Falls is about 65 percent complete, and barring any major delays, should be ready to move in by late January, PEC officials said Thursday.


PEC directors change board to single-member districts

Proposed changes to the bylaws of the Pedernales Electric Cooperative that change how directors are elected were passed Monday, Aug. 15, by the co-op's board of directors during a meeting that, at times, was very heated and tense.

The amendments to the bylaws — passed by a 5-2 supermajority vote — now create single-member districts in which only members who live within a district may vote for the director from that district. They also create a different quorum requirement for election of directors than that required for the annual PEC meeting, which is when director elections have traditionally taken place. The changes would take effect for the 2017 election cycle.
