On Thursday, January 14, 2010 Gene Hahn was recognized by the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority’s Board of Directors for his service to Public Power, the citizens of Granite and the State of Oklahoma.

Gene Hahn announced at the December 2009 OMPA Board meeting that he would be resigning from the OMPA Board at the close of the January 2010 meeting. Hahn served on the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority’s Board of Directors from January 11, 1990 until January 14, 2010.

Gene Hahn served the interest of all member cities whether large or small as an Elector from Granite, and as a member of the OMPA Board of Directors.

Gene Hahn has worked hard and served the citizens of Granite for over 50 years. Gene’s forward thinking and progressive attitude for cities led to Granite being one of the first small cities to have a computer automated billing system offered through the American Public Power Association (APPA).

Gene’s leadership in his community also led to his recognition as one of the first in Oklahoma to be awarded the Larry Hobart Seven Hats Award from APPA.

“It has been an honor to serve with you Gene, thank you for your service,” OMPA Board Chair Charles Lamb.

OMPA is a state governmental agency created by the legislature to serve cities and towns that own and operate their electrical distribution systems and is governed by the members. The Authority presently serves 36 municipally-owned electric systems in Oklahoma.
