Meet Jack Borsch: The little City of Lake Worth's new Electric Utilities Director

Below is an excerpt from the new City email newsletter called WorthNoting. To get these e-letters use this link here. From the City's latest e-letter:

     John “Jack” Borsch, Electric Utilities Director for the City of Lake Worth, has only been with the City a month. But he has a clear vision for the department to have a friendly neighborhood mission. A neighborhood utilities department is one that provides personal customer service understanding the unique culture of Lake Worth, and meets not only needs of the residents, but the community as a whole.
     “I hope to maintain the public government mentality of personal service, while also recognizing the value of the dollar,” said Borsch.
     Understanding that the value of the dollar is important to residents is something that Borsch wants to address. According to Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) Lake Worth has the fourth lowest cost of power in the State of Florida, better than larger cities like Orlando, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville.
Competitive? Yes, Lake Worth Electric IS competitive!
     The City has come a long way in lowering the electric rates over the past four years. Rates have dropped almost 12% for residential customers.
