KMUA's Mission is to unify and serve as a common voice for municipal utilities by advocating for community-owned and controlled utilities and to provide its members with the support they need to be able to deliver maximum benefit to their customers and communities.

Today the Kentucky Municipal Utilities Association (KMUA) represents 45 city-owned utilities which provide the essential services of electric power, water, wastewater, natural gas and telecommunication services. KMUA takes pride in providing low-cost, efficient and reliable services to locally owned and operated utilities governed by city officials or independent utility boards appointed by city officials.

KMUA supports reasonable safety and environmental rules and regulations which protect the public health while allowing utilities to meet the needs of their customers at realistic cost.

KMUA opposes any action, legislative or administrative, which would curb, limit, or remove local control of the operations of municipal utilities from their citizen owners.
