Director of Logan power department steps down

Jeffrey White has stepped down from his job as director of the Logan City Light and Power Department. Mayor Randy Watts says White had been with the city for almost four years. Prior to that, he worked 29 years with Rocky Mountain Power Company. Watts says when White came, Logan City was looking at going for a 138,000 volt system as some larger cities were doing. “He came in and pulled the plug and said, ‘We can stay at 46 (which we’re at now), build a few more substations in the future.’ That was huge for the city,” Watts says. “That could have been as big as $25-$30 million over the long run. “It would have taken a while to build to the 138 system. I compliment him on that. He’s been good to work with. He’s been good with renewable (energy) and working with Laraine on our portfolio to have renewable on our energy grid.” Watts says he will probably not be looking for a replacement until after the first of the year.
