With Osceola's publicly owned utility, citizens control the destiny of the utility through its elected officials. This assures local control and accountability. The City of Osceola, with its diverse community, prides itself on the high quality and variety of government services it provides to its citizens. For close to a century Osceola's city-owned electric utility has provided quality and reliable electric services for its customers while at the same time maintaining competitive prices. A municipal utility like Osceola is able to respond quickly to emergencies, maintain close contact with its customers, provide state of the art energy efficiency and renewable energy programs and maintain local access to elected officials who make the decisions affecting their citizens. Local control if the utility also means the City maintains its own inventory of parts and equipment. Preventative maintenance programs ensure citizens that their long-term investment is protected and that electric rates remain stable and competitive. The advantages of municipal ownership are numerous. Yet challenges to keep rates competitive remain. With the support and involvement from citizens, the City Council continues to recognize the importance of the City's electric utility. From humble beginnings the utility has grown and changed to meet the needs of Osceola citizens. The decision to operate its own electric utility by citizens close to a century ago is in keeping with the Osceola tradition of self-sufficiency and local control of it destiny.
