NOTICE TO BIG HORN REA MEMBERS
The 2020 Annual Meeting initially scheduled for March 21, 2020 was postponed due to safety and health concerns relative to COVID-19. The Meeting was rescheduled for May 30, 2020. Still due to COVID-19 related concerns, such as: the uncertainty of meeting as a large group; utilization of the school facility for holding the meeting; and safety and health of our members, the Board of Directors has decided to CANCEL the 2020 Annual Meeting.
However, the election of a director for District # 1 (Burlington, Emblem, Otto) and a director for District # 4 (Meeteetse) will be conducted through the use of a mail in ballot. Each member will get a ballot in the mail that can be completed and returned in a postage paid envelope to James Reilly CPA, P.C. in Cody, Wyoming. The CPA firm will be collecting and tabulating the vote count. The ballots will be sent to each member on May 15, 2020. Please be watching your mail for the envelope from Big Horn REA noting the ballot is enclosed. Complete the ballot as instructed in the mailing and return the completed ballot in the mail in time to be received no later than 1:00pm on June 18, 2020. The returned ballots will be counted and results available on June 19, 2020.
Please note, each member that returns a proper ballot by the deadline of 1:00pm on June 18, 2020 will receive a $25.00 energy credit on your July utility bill. The $25.00 credit is one per membership – not for each electric account you may have with Big Horn REA.
The board candidates for District # 1 are: Donald M. Russell, Sara Schlattmann, and Richard Wardell.
The board candidates for District # 4 are: John Fernandez and Neil Schlenker.
If you have any questions you can call the office at 1-307-568-2419 or 1-800-564-2419. The office will not be accepting any ballots. They must be sent by the members to James Reilly CPA in Cody.
