City of Clarksville
Clarksville, TN – CDE Lightband and the City of Clarksville thanked former CDE General Manager Dalton B. Smith on Thursday, September 20th, 2018 by naming a new substation on Tylertown Road in his honor.
Smith served as CDE General Manager from 1979 to 1994 during a time of great expansion of the City electric service area.
Among his many accomplishments, Smith led the utility’s move of its headquarters from downtown Clarksville to St. Bethlehem.
“Dalton Smith is so deserving of having this new substation named in his honor,” City of Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan said.
“CDE is a great success today thanks to Dalton’s honesty, integrity and hard working leadership during his 16-year tenure as CDE general manager. Now, everyone will see his name on this important substation, and remember his substantial contributions to our growing City,” McMillan stated.
The new $6 million substation will help CDE enhance system reliability while serving new homes in rapidly growing Northeast Clarksville.
