John “Jack” Borsch, the Director of the City of Lake Worth Electric Utilities has tendered his resignation with the City, effective February 26. Jack has served as the Director of Electric Utilities since August 2015 and during his tenure with Lake Worth, the Electric Utilities has celebrated multiple successes thanks to his leadership.

In Jack’s time with the City, Lake Worth Electric Utilities has closed the gap on FP&L rates bringing the City to the verge of rate parity for residential properties. Next month the ribbon cutting ceremony will be held for the Lake Worth Solar Field where the first phase of solar panels will begin to provide 2% of the City’s electric needs, a project that has been developed and led by Jack and his department. During Hurricane Matthew, and recent storms, Lake Worth Electric Utilities has managed to maintain power for most residents with only minimal disruption due in part to Jack’s planning before and actions during the storm.

Jack is moving to IHI Industrial based in California where he will manage a fleet of power stations along the US Eastern Seaboard.

“Jack has been a key part of my management team and a strong leader in transitioning Lake Worth Electric Utilities into a well-run operation. I wish him the best of success as he moves into his new position.”
~City Manager Michael Bornstein

“I love the City and have worked hard to make positive changes over the last two years. This decision was not one based on any malcontent with the City but rather was based on a positive opportunity that would allow me to be located closer to family.”
~Lake Worth Electric Utilities Director, John Borsch
