In their Jan. 22 meeting, Pryor’s Municipal Utility Board gave promotions and reviewed annual reports.

Jennifer Adams was transferred to the MUB Board Warehouse and promoted to the position of Assistant Purchasing Agent non-merit.

On the MUB Tree-Trimming Crew, Johnny Bark was promoted to the position of Tree Trimming Crew Chief non-merit.

Roger Eichelberger was promoted to Gas Department Crew Chief with merit.

The votes were unanimous for all three promotions, which were effective Jan. 17.

Mehlburger Brawley Engineering gave a progress report on the wastewater treatment plant projects, and reported on a walking inspection of the North Maple Street to North Edith Street sewer extension and plans to notify the contractor, Ball Construction.

The Identity Theft Prevention Program annual report was given by Teri Hill.

The report stated that the Red Flag Alert policies and procedures are still effective. Clerks are still required to get two forms of identification on all new customers that are establishing service. The report stated commercial accounts are required to have a federal ID number to avoid providing two forms of identification.

In the report Josi Morrison, head clerk, said one possible Red Flag Alert was reported since March 13, 2012. The report stated, “No new concerns or changes to our policy are recommended at this time. We will continue to stay on top of the Red Flag procedures to help ensure we don’t have any stolen identities.”

Reports from the Gas, Water, Sewer and Electric Departments, through Feb. 4 were presented in the minutes as well.

The gas crew has been working on cathodic testing in the system and have replaced welded risers with anodeless risers at two locations.

The electric crew also set two new poles for service, built a new transformer station, an underground secondary, and fixed an underground light circuit.
