FIX JEA NOW CALLS FOR STUDY TO BE CONDUCTED BY INDEPENDENT EXPERT WITH FULL TRANSPARENCY

Today JEA Board Member Tom Petway announced his resignation and called for a valuation of JEA's assets on the open market along with an assessment of whether JEA’s customers would be better served by the private market. Mr. Petway pointed to the fact that much has changed over the last 49 years since the utility was created and that the concept for JEA needs to be reviewed.

What is most important is that JEA customers are provided with the best, most reliable and most affordable service possible. Fix JEA Now has previously called on JEA to address several issues of mismanagement that have cost the ratepayers millions of dollars, and plans to meet with JEA leadership in the near future to discuss in further detail.

Fix JEA Now supports Mr. Petway's recommendation for review but believes any review must be done by an independent expert in a transparent manner.
