Electrical District No. 3 is under old management. The departure of Brett Benedict as general manager after a year was announced in January, and former General Manager Bill Stacy returned from retirement to take over on an interim basis.
Stacy said he expects to be on the job through April or May as the board conducts a national search for a new general manager.
After retiring last January, Stacy had planned to relax in the Carolinas before the ED3 board asked him back. He had been with the not-for-profit utility more than a decade.
The district was formed in 1926 and is run by a seven-member board of directors.
