The next PPS Board Meeting is scheduled for May 8 at noon at 1500 Broadway, Paducah, KY.
Paducah Power System is a municipal utility which operates under all applicable state and federal regulations.
A five member board sets our policies and oversees our operations. Our General Manager, Gary Zheng, manages the day to day operations according to those policies. As required by state law, our board members are appointed by the mayor of Paducah and approved by the Paducah City Commission. Our board includes, at all times, a current city commission member or the city manager. However, decisions made by the Electric Plant Board are independent of the city commission and do not require approval by the commission.
A full board term is four years. A board member may serve more than one term. Board members do not have to be Paducah Power customers, but, according to state law, they must reside in the city of Paducah. Our current board members are:
Vice Chair-Mark Workman
Secretary/Treasurer-Adolphus Jones, Jr.
Member-Jeff Pederson, City Manager
Regular Paducah Electric Plant Board meetings are held on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at noon at PPS offices, 1500 Broadway, Paducah. However, board business is typically sufficiently accomplished during the first regular meeting of each month, eliminating the need for the second regular meeting.
Open Meetings/Open Records
Paducah Power System is subject to and abides by Kentucky’s Open Meetings and Open Records Acts. Therefore, our board meetings are open to the public.
