Kosciusko REMC is dedicated to safely providing quality electric energy and services to customers at a competitive cost. We value integrity, accountability, innovation and commitment to community above all else.
Kosciusko REMC is governed by nine individuals, who make up the KREMC Board of Directors. The directors are as follows: William Jr. Stump (Chairman), Dan Tucker (Vice-Chairman), Terry Bouse (Secretary-Treasurer), Kim Buhrt, Tony Fleming, Pam Messmore, Steve Miner, Rick Parker, and John Hand. Each individual serving on the board is a member of KREMC, and was voted in by you, the members.
Just like in other counties at the time, there were a few farms in Kosciusko that the private power companies would serve, but the price for electricity was higher than they could afford. President Roosevelt changed that in 1935 by establishing the Rural Electrification Administration (REA), a program to help distribute electricity to rural areas. On November 2, 1935, the Kosciusko County Farm Bureau met in Wayne Township for the annual business meeting. Wilson Taylor, from the IFB
, was a guest speaker who talked with members about forming a rural electrification cooperative. Several members met with him after the meeting and 11 signed articles of incorporation. Soon after, bylaws were formed and the first group of directors was elected.
