The Murfreesboro City Council and the Power Board will conduct a Special Joint Public Meeting, Thursday at 5:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall. Amy Byers with Murfreesboro Electric says the purpose of the meeting is to hear an overview on the Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation (MTEMC) Memorandum of Understanding to acquire Murfreesboro Electric Department (MED)...

Last week, MTEMC announced that the utility had asked the City of Murfreesboro to enter discussions on a potential sale and consolidation of MED into MTEMC. In considering whether to enter into negotiations with MTEMC, City administrators, elected and appointed officers, must analyze a number of financial and operational issues to ensure the sale is warranted. That includes increased efficiency by combining resources of the two systems and thereby reducing duplication.
