New website coming for Moose Lake Water & Light


A kick-off meeting was held to show customers the new power company page on the city’s website, it was said at the meeting of the commission on Tuesday, June 18. Once the page has been properly set up, customers will be able to pay their bills online, said Sally Iund, the office manager.

Other services provided on the page will include forms, customer service, popular links, events calendar, superintendent’s notes, rebates, policies, commission members, agendas, minutes of commission meetings, energy assistance information, and rates.

“We hope to have the page live by the end of July,” said Iund. “A mobile app will be free, and there will be a call center where people can call until 8 p.m. to take payments.”

The new windows have been installed in the Moose Lake Water and Light Commission power plant. Screens for the new windows will come in August, added Superintendent Harlan Schmeling.

He also reported that the last payment of $48,061.50 can be made on the new generator.

“The cost of the engine came in at $1.9 million, which is less than the budget of $2.1 million,” he added.

There was also discussion about a new company logo. Iund displayed several samples of logos that would be applied to the doors of the company trucks, on letterheads and paperwork, and for other uses.

There were suggestions of minor changes of one logo that was favored. It will be brought back to another meeting for final approval.

The new meters have begun arriving, reported Schmeling. The meters still won’t be installed until August.

The equipment for the fast chargers for electric vehicles has also arrived. The chargers will be installed after the Fourth of July, he said.

In other business, the commissioners approved a rebate request from Parson’s Electric in the amount of $1,070.12 for energy efficient lighting materials for the city park pavilion.

The next meeting of the commission was set for Tuesday, July 16, at 3 p.m.
