Lamar Electric Awarded for Safety

LEC Receives Safety Award Rick Crump Receives Safety Award

Lamar Electric Cooperative has reached a milestone of seven years without a recordable injury. Texas Electric Cooperatives Loss Control Specialist, Scott Corley, presented an award for seven years with no lost time incidents. That is 2,555 days. “A lineman’s job is one of the top ten most dangerous jobs in the United States. An entire organization like this one having a no lost time incident for seven years is an exceptional safety record,” stated Corley. The award was accepted by Line Superintendent, Scott Sansom, and CEO/General Manager, Jerry Williams. This record of no lost time is due to the commitment to safety from our board of directors, CEO/general manager, managers, superintendents and employees. “We have weekly safety meetings and we review our safety manual continuously. We even go above and beyond the guidelines in our safety manual to ensure all employees get home safely to their families,” said Sansom.

Deposit Refunds Go Unclaimed

Deposit Refunds Go Unclaimed

Lamar Electric Cooperative is attempting to locate former members who have not cashed refund checks issued in March 2012 through February 2015. The checks are for deposits, final bill refunds or membership fees.

“Many of these checks go unclaimed because members fail to provide us with a forwarding address. These checks are returned to us by the postal service,” said Director of Communications, Katie Morris. Lamar Electric is only allowed to hold funds for a certain amount of time, and is required by law to send unclaimed money to the state of Texas. Those who have not claimed their refund may need to file a claim with the state of Texas in order to receive their refund.  Should your name appear on the list or if you are the legal heir to the estate of an account, whose name is on the list, please contact Lamar Electric at 903-784-4303 to claim your refund.
