SRE members vote to amend Certificate of Incorporation

Singing River Electric Cooperative members voted by 96% to amend the co-op’s Certificate of Incorporation and allow SRE to potentially provide both electric and high-speed internet or broadband services on Friday, Oct. 9 at the Lucedale office.

“We ask now for your patience as the board carefully considers this vote, their research and the wise counsel of our experienced consultants to make a decision by the end of the year on whether to provide broadband fiber service,” said Singing River Electric CEO and General Manager Brian Hughey.

The results of the board’s decision on broadband will be released in the member magazine publication, The Today in Mississippi, which is mailed to members the first week of every month.
