Four basic yet important areas of utility operations; a reliable service - ready for storm and disaster; a safe utility - where the employees and the public take pride in their utility profession; a ever growing and active employee base - geared for success in the future and system betterment - a utility with innovation and a healthy system" - Michael J.
