STAFF REPORT

It has been an eventful summer for Kyle Dicke, Assistant Director of Public Services-Electric Utility in San Marcos.  He was elected to serve on two  executive boards in the state of Texas.

Kyle was chosen in June to serve as the President of the Association of Wholesale Customers (AWC). The AWC represents the interests and issues of the 43 Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) municipal and cooperative electric systems.

LCRA plays a variety of roles in Central Texas, such as delivering electricity, managing the water supply and environment of the lower Colorado River basin, developing water and wastewater utilities, providing public recreation areas, and supporting community and economic development.

The AWA oversees the activities of the LCRA’s Wholesale Power Services Division. It monitors issues and concerns that include regulatory issues,  fuel costs, electric rates and the financial practices within the LCRA.

Dicke was first elected to the AWC board in 2005. He served as vice-president 2007-2009 before being elected president this year. Other board members come from municipal systems in Brenham, Kerrville, New Braunfels and Weimar as well as the Bandera, Fayette, Guadalupe Valley and San Bernard Electric Cooperatives.

“It is a tremendous honor to have the confidence and support of not only the City of San Marcos, but also my peers from the other cities and cooperatives,” Dicke said.

In July, Dicke was elected to serve on the Texas Public Power Association (TPPA) Executive Board. TTPA represents 71 municipal and six cooperative electrical utilities, three river authorities and two power generation joint agencies statewide.

The primary focus of TPPA is representing the interests of public power providers in the state of Texas. TTPA facilitates cooperation among member systems, assists in the solution of mutual problems and promotes the exchange of ideas and experiences, provides spokespersons concerning state and national issues and operates a resource center for research and technical assistance. Dicke will serve a three-year term on the board.

Kyle Dicke has worked for the city of San Marcos for 11 years. Before becoming Assistant Director of Public Services in the  Electric Utility Division, he served as Metering Supervisor and Customer Relations Manager.
