New windows for power plant, new meters for residents this spring


March 21, 2019

The Moose Lake Water and Light Commission approved a bid from NABO for the removal of asbestos around the windows in the power plant building at a cost of $7,250, at the monthly meeting of the commission on Tuesday, March 12.

Previously, a bid had been received from another company for the asbestos removal but it had been the only bid. Superintendent Harlan Schmeling had been directed by the commission to request other bids, and the bid accepted was a much lower price than a previous bid.

The window replacement project is planned to take place in April or May.

The new AMI meters are still slated for installation on homes and businesses in the service area this spring. Training is scheduled for installing and programming of the relays to relay information from the meters to the power plant the first part of April, reported Schmeling.

Signs on Interstate 35 to inform traffic of the fast chargers for electric vehicles in Moose Lake would be provided by the state at no cost to the city, reported Schmeling.

There would be a charge for signs installed along the highway from the interstate to downtown. It was said that there should be three signs and those could be installed by the power company unless the state would have to install them along state Highway 73.

The chargers will be located in the parking lot near the liquor store. The chargers will have two levels of charging available, one for fast charging and one for slower charging, it was said.

The next meeting of the commission was set for Tuesday, April 16, at 3 p.m. at the power plant conference room.
