A new manager has been appointed for Anchorage's city utility company.

Reports say James A. Trent begins his new post with Municipal Light and Power on Monday. He replaces former general manager Jim Posey, who retired in December.

Trent most recently worked as a consultant to a Colorado industrial automation company.

Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan, who appointed Trent, says in a news release that Trent has 30 years of experience and power system planning, and in design and operations of utilities.

Dan Kendall, Sullivan's chief of staff, has acted as interim manager of the Anchorage utility since Posey's retirement.
