In September we will be mailing you an important packet that will include a ballot you can use to vote on our cooperative’s merger with Gibson Electric Membership Corporation. This is the most critical decision in our co-op’s history and we need your vote! To encourage member participation, HFRECC will give you a $10 credit on your November electric bill if you vote “yes” or “no.” To receive the credit, just mark your ballot, place it in the self-addressed postage paid envelope and drop it in the mail. The auditing firm of Jackson and Thornton will receive and tabulate the votes.
While you will receive the $10 November bill credit no matter how you vote, we - HFRECC’s board and Gibson EMC’s board – urge you to vote “yes” for the merger because it will save members $12.6 million over the next 10 years. Voting “yes” will give you lower distribution rates and better service. Our Hickman Office will remain open and our employees will keep their jobs. Everyone benefits.
Again, please watch for your ballot and vote. The merger can only proceed if the majority of all HFRECC members vote "yes" for the merger; and two-thirds of all members who cast a ballot vote "yes" for the merger.
Please take time to read over the Frequently Asked Questions and view the slide presentation for more information. If you have questions, please also feel free to call your HFRECC office at 270-236-2521 or call your Board Member.
