Burlingame increases electrical rates

BURLINGAME—The City of Burlingame reviewed bids for the final piece of electrical system upgrade project for Phase I. Each bid substantially exceeded the project engineer’s estimate.

Greg Wright, of Energy Management Group, led utility rate discussion at a Nov. 12 special meeting. Discussion established that change of rate structure was necessary to place electric service on a stable financial footing.

School rethinks plans to close Sixth Street

LYNDON—The USD 421 Board of Education decided to table discussion on closing Sixth Street, which they had considered for a school building construction proposal.

“It is the consensus of the board to consider options other than closing Sixth Street for the construction of the new facility,” said Brian Spencer, USD 421 superintendent.

Several reasons appeared to motivate the board to make their decision. Don Jones, Lyndon resident, appeared at the meeting to voice his concerns, which were matched by other members of the community.
