South Dakota Public Utilities Commission Meeting

Monday, January 10, 2005 at 1:30 P.M.
Room 464, State Capitol Building, Pierre, South Dakota

NOTE:  If you wish to join this meeting by conference call, please contact the Commission at 605-773-3201.

 NOTE:  Notice is further given to persons with disabilities that this Commission meeting is being held in a physically accessible place.  If you have special needs, please notify the Commission and we will make all necessary arrangements. 



1.  Election Of A Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson Of The Commission.   (General Counsel:  John Smith.)

South Dakota Codified Law 49-1-8 states in part that, "The members of the Commission shall elect a chairperson by majority vote and prescribe his duties."  Traditionally, the three Commissioners have elected a Chairperson and a Vice-Chairperson every two years.  SDCL 49-1-12 requires that, "Every vote and official action of the Public Utilities Commission shall be entered of record and its proceedings shall be public upon the request of either party or any person interested."  Accordingly, the determination of the Commission's leadership structure shall be made at this public meeting.

TODAY, how shall the Commission provide for its executive leadership?


1.         EL04-040         In the Matter of the Filing by Otter Tail Power Company for Approval of Tariff Revisions.   (Staff Analyst:  Dave Jacobson,  Staff Attorney:  Sara Harens)

 Application by Otter Tail Power Company (Otter Tail) for approval to revise its tariffed Summary List of Contracts with Deviations. The existing contract with the City of Clear Lake will expire on January 15, 2005.  Otter Tail states the new agreement does not contain any deviations from Otter Tail's currently filed tariff and therefore requests that reference to a contract with the City of Clear Lake be removed from the Summary List of Contracts with Deviations.

TODAY, shall the Commission Approve the Tariff Revisions?
