Michele Skalicky

The general manager of Springfield City Utilities is retiring after leading the utility company since 2011.  Scott Miller’s last day will be December 20.  

According to a news release, Miller joined City Utilities in 2002 and was instrumental in the construction and startup of Unit 2 at the John Twitty Energy Center before becoming general manager. 

It states that, during his time as general manager, "CU strengthened its strong financial position to a AA+ rating, positioned the utility for the future by increasing its renewable portfolio to over 40% and focused on community involvement and economic development."  

Past CU Board chair, Jeff Childs, said, “Scott has been a true leader and collaborator for our community and the utility industry.  He is a relentless champion for economic development and growth, diversity, and the overall betterment of the community." 

Information regarding the appointment of a search committee and the process for hiring a general manager will be provided in the near future, according to CU.

Miller plans to remain in Springfield and said he looks forward to spending more time with his children and grandchildren and enjoying the outdoors.
