Boisen receives award for contributions to the utility and community
Utility Commissioner Eugene Boisen was recently recognized by WPPI Energy for his exceptional service to the utility and the community. WPPI Energy, our nonprofit power supplier, presented Boisen with its Community Service Award at its annual meeting on September 17 in Green Lake.
As a dedicated utility commissioner, Boisen has contributed to the success of the utility since 2000. He has supported the efforts for the utility publicly, most recently during the reconstruction of the dam and hydroelectric project. He has been an active participant in the efforts of WPPI Energy, attending the American Public Power Association’s Legislative Rally in 2009, as well as WPPI Energy board meetings and events. Boisen also serves on the Black River Falls Plan Commission and Board of Appeals. He currently serves as an alternate director, representing Black River Falls on the WPPI Energy Board of Directors.
“Eugene’s dedication and hard work demonstrate his genuine interest in his community,” said Roy Thilly, WPPI Energy president and chief executive officer. “We are honored to recognize Eugene for his longstanding efforts and commitment to the success of Black River Falls Municipal Utilities and WPPI Energy.”
Over the years, Boisen has dedicated his efforts to the oversight of operations and personal matters within the community. Boisen’s efforts and years of dedicated service continue to advance the success of Black River Falls Municipal Utilities. His interaction with customers adds value to the community and further enhances the goals of the utility.
The Community Service Award is presented in memory of the late Richard “Dixie” Kirchoff, longtime superintendent of WPPI Energy member Hustisford Utilities.
