JREC wants you our member owners in all districts to be informed as we move forward with our negotiations with the LCO. JREC entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the LCO and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) which was executed in the late fall of 2017. The MOU seeks a final decision to be reached on or before April 30, 2018, this letter addresses the options JREC has brought before the Tribal Council to reach a possible resolution.
JREC will continue to update our member owners through articles in the Wisconsin Energy Cooperative News Magazine, this website and on Facebook.
