Utility Outage Notice

According to Rob Culley, Baldwin City Power Plant Superintendent, "We will be performing some preventative maintenance work next month at the Newton Street Substation.  Every five years we clean and test the Circuit Breakers, Relays and Reclosing Devices at the Newton Street Substation, as well as both Power Plants. Unfortunately, this type of maintenance does require an outage of the entire city."
 As a result, the following statement has been issued to inform the public of the upcoming power outage at 5 A.M. on the morning of Wednesday April 12, 2017.

During the week of April 10th 2017, the Baldwin City Utility 
Department will be performing Maintenance Inspections at our 
Newton Street Substation. A portion of this project will require 
a power outage for the entire City.
Work is scheduled to begin at 8:00 AM on Monday April 10th
On Wednesday April 12th, a Citywide Outage will occur at 
approximately 5:00 AM.
Please plan ahead for a minimum 30 minute outage.
We understand the inconvenience created by projects like this, 
and will do our very best to keep the outage time to a minimum.

Thank you for your time and consideration
