Senate, last week, confirmed appointments of Board members to key public entities that have not had full Boards for a while.
Richard L. Misech, former PNCC CEO and Jeffery Titiml, former Kayangel Governor, were approved to the Board of Public Utilities Corporation (PPUC). PPUC has had 3 board members, a quorum but needed 2 more. PPUC is in the process of finalizing an IPP contract for renewable energy project, implementing tariff for full cost recovery and obtaining the $10 million dollar loan to upgrade and service its infrastructure.
Financial Institutions Commission had three board members approved, Jennifer Koskelin-Gibbons, Hermana Idip and Vance Polycarp Basilius.
Glenn Seid was approved to the Environmental Quality Protection Board while Kione Isechal was accepted to Palau Community College Board of Trustees.
