The History of PUBCAP

To provide customers a forum to express community concerns, the Brownsville Public Utilities Board established a Public Utilities Board Consumer Advisory Panel (PUBCAP) in 1983. 

Additional purposes for PUBCAP include:

  • Communications and services to its customers
  • Identify and discuss electric, water and wastewater issues affecting BPUB and its customers
  • To respond to BPUB’s request for advice and consultation on various issues.

PUBCAP consists of 11 members. Ten members will be selected by BPUB from recommendations made by PUBCAP members. Panel members shall serve on the panel for a two-year term. 

PUBCAP meetings are held once a month, typically the third Wednesday of each month from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at the BPUB Administration Building, unless otherwise specified.  The public is welcome to attend monthly PUBCAP meetings.
