Bids open next week for materials for the new Southeast Switching Station. Anticipated cost of those materials, including transmission towers and insulators is $260,000. After bids have been reviewed, the Pella City Council will hold a public hearing on November 15th to award the contract. Pella City Administrator Mike Nardini says the Switching Station is just one of many improvements the city is making in order to increase the long term reliablity of the city’s power supply.
