Our Response To COVID-19

 

The safety and well-being of our members and employees is our top priority at HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative. As part of that commitment, we wanted to take a moment to share our response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic. For us, matters like this essentially come down to three key factors:

Districts 2 and 4 To Hold Director Elections This Year

HomeWorks members in districts 2 and 4 will carry out one of the most important duties of a cooperative's membership this year when they elect a director to represent them on the Co-op board. Current directors Jim Stebbins of Clarksville (District 2) and Kimber Hansen of Edmore (District 4) have both announced they will seek re-election in their respective districts. Other district 2 and 4 members interested in running for the position should contact their district's nominating committee by Feb. 5.

Rita Owen Retires

After 17 years with the cooperative, you can’t fault billing specialist Rita Owen for feeling a little bittersweet about her retirement this month.

“I think I’m probably going to miss everything about this place,” she says. “It’s really become like a second home to me.”

Owen came to HomeWorks in 2001, after 15 years as a home daycare provider. At the time, she was ready for a new challenge, and the Westphalia native says she found that and more at the cooperative.

HomeWorks Connect Makes Progress

HomeWorks Connect, our fiber-to-the-home high-speed internet service, is moving along in Phase 1.

We expect to build service to our first retail customers in September; meanwhile, we’ve had crews out engineering and inspecting our power lines to make sure they’re ready for the addition of fiber optic cable when construction starts in May.
