Appointees should be experts in technical areas related to utility

SEATTLE The Seattle City Council is looking for three experts to appoint to the Seattle City Light Advisory Committee, which advises the Council, Mayor and City Light Superintendent on policies, business strategies and performance oversight. The committee examines the utilitys finances, power supply, power marketing, risk management, environmental protection, energy conservation and other areas as deemed appropriate by the Mayor and Council.

Seattle City Light and the City of Seattle will benefit greatly from committee members with expertise and a desire to contribute his or her unique perspective to the mix of opinions offered by Councilmembers, the Mayor, and the Superintendent, said Councilmember Jean Godden, chair of the Energy and Technology Committee.

We hope to attract a diverse group of candidates to serve on this panel, reflecting the many issues the utility faces and the varying needs of the utilitys ratepayers, said Councilmember David Della, vice-chair of the Energy and Technology Committee.

The Advisory Committee will continue to strengthen the sound management at Seattle City Light and maintain it as one of the nations leading public utilities, said Councilmember Nick Licata, member of the Energy and Technology Committee.

The City Council and the Mayor each will make three appointments, all six of which will be approved by the Council.
