Power Board members learned no identity thefts have been recorded at Dyersburg Electric System at the organization's regular meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 16.
DES President and CEO Stephen Lane presented the system's annual Identity Theft Protection management report at the January meeting. The presentation was made in compliance with the Fair and accurate Credit Transactions Act -- or the FACT Act. Lane reported there were no identity-theft incidents recorded.
Power Board member David Hayes moved to accept the report as information, with Rawlin Fowlkes adding a second. The motion passed, unanimously, with all members present at the meeting.
The report updated Power Board members on the pros and cons of the current system and strategies in place to reduce the threat of identity theft through the DES system.
DES Secretary Robbie Richards reported the system had no lost-time accidents during the month of December 2012. To date, DES has worked 4,263 days -- or 11.67 years -- without a lost-time accident. Richards also presented the financial report to Power Board members.
Power Board member Dennis Moody moved to charge off uncollectible electric accounts in the amount of $2,690.83, with Hayes adding a second. The motion passed, unopposed, and the accounts will be turned over to a collection agency.
Lane reported DES collected $1,110.63 in December, 41.27 percent of totals charged off in the same month.
Also at the meeting, Power Board members rescheduled the February meeting from the regular date -- noon on the third Wednesday of the month (Feb. 20) -- to noon on Wednesday, Feb. 27.
