KALISPELL - Flathead Electric Cooperative members will see a $2 million rate decrease next year because of internal cost controls and expected lower wholesale power costs, the cooperative's board says.

The board announced the reduction during this week's meeting, when it also accepted the resignation of President Bruce Measure.

He has been appointmented to the Northwest Power and Conservation Council by Gov.-elect Brian Schweitzer. The council represents the interests of Bonneville Power Administration consumers in Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

Measure, a Kalispell lawyer, was elected to the cooperative board in March 2002.

The Flathead Electric Cooperative has more than 44,000 members.
