Utility Advisory Board’s Draft Energy Policy for the City of Gainesville (B)



The City Commission and UAB met jointly on October 30, 2018, to discuss the UAB’s draft work plan.  The Board expressed the desire to focus on creation of an energy policy for the City of Gainesville and the Commission agreed. Since that time, the UAB has held a series of workshops to work on crafting the policy document and presented the draft to the City Commission in a joint meeting on April 23, 2019.  The Commission received the presentation and gave direction for the Board to continue their work.  At their May 8, 2019 regular meeting, the Board discussed a possible timeline for completion of the work and incorporating public workshops for engaging citizens in the drafting process.  At their May 30, 2019 workshop, the Board discussed potential options for public engagement and agreed that the document needed additional work before involving citizens.  The Board agreed that each member would work on revising any parts of the document in which they were interested and Member Alford would work the edits into one document.
