CFU Governed By Local Board of Trustees

Posted on Monday, August 28, 2017

The Cedar Falls municipal utilities are owned by the citizens of Cedar Falls and operated on a not-for-profit basis for public benefit.

CFU is governed by a citizen Board of Trustees that works to ensure that CFU staff have the leadership and tools to meet and exceed customer expectations. Residents benefit from an increased focus on customer satisfaction and long-term success.

The five CFU Trustees are Cedar Falls residents appointed by the mayor to six-year terms. Each brings a unique background and skill set to the oversight of CFU.

Board members work diligently to develop a thorough understanding of the four widely different industries in which CFU operates - water, natural gas, broadband services and electricity.

The Trustees establish policies and set utility rates, review and approve expenditures and the annual operating and capital budgets for each utility, award contracts let through public bidding, engage in long-term resource and strategic planning and hire the general manager who oversees daily utility operations.

Regular meetings of the Board of Trustees are held on the second Wednesday of each month at
2 p.m. at the Utility office on Utility Parkway, Cedar Falls.

The Board agenda is published on the Monday prior to each meeting and the public is welcome to attend.
