City looks to improve IPL Performance

The overall operations and performance of the Independence Power & Light are being reviewed by an outside independent party.

The City Council, last December, approved a contract with Management Partners for a broad overview of the city-owned electric utility.

The review includes a review of current operations, financial reporting and performance benchmarks, revenue structure and long-term funding. It includes a review of each operating division, overall operating procedures and staffing levels.

The last time a similar review was conducted was over 17 years ago.

The cost of the audit is $79,000 to be completed this spring.
