2023 Board of Directors Election Update

We are a private member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative managed by a nine-person Board of Directors. As a private company, we conduct our elections with voting procedures much like other companies who elect directors to its boards.

On completion of the December 2022 application period, three candidates applied and qualified for three seats on the BSU board of directors:

  • Paul J. Attwood, BSU board member since 2001 and current secretary, who served for 20 years in the oil & gas regulatory section of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
  • Brian Farrar, BSU board member since 2016 and current president, who is president of BCF Management Group LLC and Lee County Mosquito Control District commissioner.
  • James Murphy, CEO of Illinois Coal Sales Inc. and Bonita Springs Fire Control & Rescue District commissioner and former BSU board member.

In accordance with BSU bylaws, because the number of qualifying candidates does not exceed the number of seats available and each available seat is for a three-year term, the three candidates will be declared as elected by the board of directors at the Tuesday, March 21 annual meeting without the expense of an election by the members.

Bonita Springs Utilities, Inc. will hold its annual member meeting Tuesday, March 21, at 7 p.m. at the Customer Service Center, located at 11900 East Terry St. Bonita Springs. At the meeting, the utility will report on the company’s performance and receive member comment.


Together, we are BSU
