            On March 3, 2008, Sioux Valley-Southwestern Electric Cooperative, d/b/a Sioux Valley Energy (SVE) and Brookings Municipal Utilities (BMU) filed for Commission approval of two territory boundary changes.  First, BMU provides service to a church outside municipal electric boundaries under the terms of a Territory Agreement entered into February 23, 2005.  The transformer serving the church is located in annexed land subject to said agreement.  Approval for this existing service exception is now sought. 

            Second, according to a Territory Agreement dated March 17, 2004, BMU serves residential customers in two platted sections not annexed.  Approval for this existing service exception is now sought.

            The utilities, subject to the above agreements, state the territory changes prevent unnecessary duplication of facilities, provide adequate electric service and prevent the stranding of facilities.
