WATCH FALL RIVER'S ENERGY EXPO 2021
2021 ENERGY EXPO MEETING REPORT
Following the lifting of most all COVID-19 restrictions in Fremont County, Idaho, the Fall River Electric board determined to host both an in-person event as well as live stream on the internet the annual business meeting for members so those members with continued concerns about gathering in-person as well as members living outside our service territory could participate.
The election of three board members out of seven candidates was completed along with dozens of free prizes given away, a high-voltage electric safety demonstration and member test drives of Fall River's Tesla electric vehicle. During the annual business meeting, $2400 scholarships were presented to 30 graduating high school students of Co-op members, the annual financial audit report was provided as well as a management report from CEO Bryan Case. You can view the entire business meeting on the video link above.
Current board members Brent "Husk" Crowther of District 1, Brent Robson of District 5 and Dede Draper from District 6 were all re-elected to new 3-year terms.
