History

 

For over 50 years, the Utilities Commission, City of New Smyrna Beach, Florida (UCNSB) has proudly provided the greater New Smyrna Beach area with quality utility services. Today, UCNSB offers electric, water, wastewater and reuse water services to approximately 27,000 residential and commercial customers.

Most municipalities in Florida provide their own water and wastewater service, but our community is special because UCNSB is just one of the 34 municipal electric utilities in the state - exclusively committed to serving our customers, not investors. UCNSB is funded solely through utility revenues and is not a taxing authority.

The Utilities Commission is a non-taxing, political subdivision of the State of Florida, created by Special Legislative Act, Public Law 67-1754, and as amended by Public Law 85-503.

One of the many advantages of a locally-owned utility is that you can participate in the decision-making process. UCNSB meetings are held the 4th Monday of every month at 3 p.m. in the DeBerry Room (3rd floor at 200 Canal Street).
