Boscobel Utilities Board of Public Works President Recognized for Service

Award commemorates public power officials who have contributed to both the success of a local utility and to the community it serves.

 Middleton, Wis. September 13, 2018

 Boscobel Utilities, the community’s locally owned, not-for-profit municipal utility, recently attended the WPPI Energy Annual Meeting on September 13, 2018.

 With over 50 utility organizations present, Lionel “Snick” Schlump, Board of Public Works President, received the WPPI Energy Community Service Award. The award recognizes public officials who demonstrate the utility’s value through their active participation in the community and show a commitment to volunteerism.

 Schlump has been a public official in the community for 36 years and has served as president for over three decades. During that time, he has made outstanding contributions to the success of Boscobel Utilities while simultaneously participating in the Boscobel community.

 “Lionel is an avid supporter of the community in all aspects. Almost on a daily basis he can be seen walking with his wife Marleen along U.S. Highway 61 from Boscobel to the boat landing and back, picking up trash along the side of the highway,” stated Mike Reynolds, Director of Public Works.

 Schlump is committed to bettering the community and supports contributions for high school scholarships, attends the awards program and announces the recipients. He is also involved with his local church and community projects.

 Boscobel Utilities is a locally owned, not-for-profit utility providing services to over 1,700 business and residential customers in Boscobel. As a member-owner of WPPI Energy, Boscobel Utilities joins forces with 50 other public power utilities. Together they share resources to provide reliable, affordable electricity to more than 200,000 homes and businesses in Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Iowa.
