Utility Advisory Board

For Utility Advisory Board Meeting Agendas & Minutes, please visit the RMU Website by clicking here.

The Rochelle Utility Advisory Board consists of six members that serve four-year terms and are appointed by the Mayor. The UAB is an advisory board to the City Council on issues of utility consumption rates, suggested code amendments, and general service policies related to the utilities not designated to the City Council or City Manager.

RMU like other public power utilities is operated by our local government to provide Rochelle with reliable, responsive, not-for-profit utility services. The Rochelle Municipal Utilities has played a major role in the growth and progress experienced by Rochelle. New projects and system improvements are initiated annually to provide quality customer service.

The Utility Advisory Board wishes to personally thank each of our RMU customers for their loyal support and confidence.
