The Lake Mills City Council has gone ahead with the purchase of a new generator for the city’s Electric Department Light Plant. City Manager Doreen Holstad explained that the purchase was necessary at a cost of $256,567. The cost not involved the purchase, but the installation too.
The generator will assist when power goes down from outside sources. According to Holstad, the installation will take a little time.
The new generator is expected to be more efficient than its predecessor.
