A Letter from Fayetteville Public Utilities' CEO/General Manager, Britt Dye

1433 years


CEO / General Manager Britt Dye

We have employees who have been with us for decades and some who have only been with us for a short time. We have employees who climb poles, others who work at computers, others who monitor and treat biosolids and others who test water quality. Some of our people build fiber networks and others build gas and water and wastewater lines. We have employees who keep track of energy consumption and employees who keep track of nuts, bolts, pipes and wires.

Regardless of the differences in their everyday jobs, the people on our team have a couple of things in common.

They are committed to safety. This is a dangerous business. We provide our people with the equipment and training they need to be safe, but nothing is better than having someone watching your back. Our people look out for others on their team and for the people in the community.

They love the places we serve. To the people who work here, Fayetteville and Lincoln County are not just places on a map. Our employees live here. We want to see the community succeed – not because it is good for FPU– but because it is good for our families and the people we care about. Our loved ones work and live here, too, and that makes a difference.

They understand the community and the people we serve. Few people know more about the places we serve than our employees. Each day they talk with families and businesses owners, and they are up close and personal with the needs of our community and people we get to serve. This awareness helps us to better respond to the needs of our customers.

They strive to make the community a better place. Whether that is through the improvements we make to infrastructure every day or through community projects like Harvest of Hope food drive, the Lincoln County toy drive, Project Help or our annual bicycle donation.  

Our employees have accumulated a total of 1433 year of experience working for FPU. To me, it represents a deep commitment to improving everyday life for the people and places we serve. I am grateful for our employees who chose to get up each day and work to make the places we serve better.

These good folks are an asset to FPU and our community, and it is an honor to work alongside them each day.
