City meeting set to discuss electricity
Baldwin City residents will soon have an opportunity to address concerns regarding the city's energy options.
There will be a town meeting 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 6 at the Baldwin Junior High School auditorium to discuss several energy options the city is considering.
Baldwin City Council member Ken Wagner said the power plant issue will be discussed.
"We need to decide if the city wants to stay in the electricity generation business," Wagner said. "If it doesn't, then we have to look at other options."
Utility director Terry McKinney has put together those additional options including partnering with other utility companies, Wagner said.
There will be a question and answer period after McKinney's presentation, he said.
"The city council really wants public input," Wagner said. "As a council member, I really encourage people to come out and discuss the options."
The council will be reviewing all of the energy options with McKinney at a Committee Meeting of the Whole at 7 p.m. Thursday at the public utilities office. Wagner said city residents are welcome to attend the meeting.
