Welcome to Sikeston BMU
The Sikeston Board of Municipal Utilities (BMU) is a city-owned utility providing the city of Sikeston with electric, water, sanitary sewer and Internet services. BMU facilities include a 235 megawatt coal-fired power plant, five electric substations, three water production plants, two wastewater treatment plants and a 30 mile fiber-optic communication system. We service approximately 9,000 residential and business customers. BMU utility rates are among the lowest in the state of Missouri .
The bi-partisan Board consists of four members appointed by the City Council for a term of four years each. The board is responsible for establishing BMU policies, rules and regulations that govern the day-to-day operations of the utility system. The Board functions as a separate unit of the City government. The Board of Municipal Utilities meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 4:00 PM in the Board Room of the BMU office at 107 E. Malone Avenue.
The Sikeston BMU is a proud member of the American Public Power Association and the Missouri Public Utility Alliance. In a public power community local dollars stay at home. Public power systems often do business with local financial institutions and make purchases from local businesses. Salaries earned by local utility employees are likely to be spent in the community. Public power’s success is measured by how many dollars stay and are invested in the local community, not how many dollars leave in the form of dividends to stockholders.
