Overview

Utilities Commission.  

The Utilities Commission shall provide recommendations and advice to the City Council on all matters related to the administration and operation of the City’s utilities. For the City’s water and sewer utility, the Utilities Commission may provide recommendations and advice on matters related to efficient and economic operations, maintenance, rates, and fees.  The Commission may also provide recommendations and advice to City Council on matters related to the administration and operation of stormwater management, except that the Commission shall not provide recommendations or advice to the City Council regarding stormwater rates and fees.  The Commission may review proposals from consultants, City staff, and the public, in order to provide the most complete information possible to City Council.  The Commission shall meet at least once every quarter.  The Commission is expressly charged with representing and considering all utility customers of the City in its activities, including City resident and non-resident customers alike.  As long as the Town of Indian River Shores receives utility services from the City of Vero Beach under a franchise, at least one (1) regular voting member of the Utilities Commission shall be a member of the Town of Indian River Shores.  All regular voting and alternate members shall reside within the service area of the City.
