The AVEC Board of Directors is considering raising the monthly Customer Charge fee by approximately $5 per month for all consumers, with the exception of those in Yakutat. As all members were notified in the 2017 and 2018 Annual Reports, AVEC experienced net Operating Losses of $1,950,239 in calendar year 2017 and $1,039,678 in 2018. A net Operating Loss is also expected for the current calendar year of 2019. The proposed change in the Customer Charge will yield about $650,000 annually.
The board will be considering other actions later in the year to bring the cooperative to a position of positive Operating Margins in 2020 and beyond.
Members are invited to call in during the scheduled Public Hearing or to submit written comments to the above address.
