The New Westminster Electric Utility Commission is staying current by getting a new name to reflect its expanding role.
The commission, which oversees the electric utility and an increasing number of projects such as the city’s urban solar garden, the BridgeNet fibre network and a district energy proposal in Sapperton, will soon be known as the New Westminster Utility Commission. Council has approved the name change, as well as changes to the commission’s bylaw.
