In September, the City Council voted to begin the project at the diesel generating plant which will increase the height of the stacks at the plant by 15 feet, up to 65 feet. The extension is necessary to comply with DNR air quality regulations. Electric Services Director Larry Peterson reported to the Council during their meeting earlier this week that crews are awaiting delivery of some steel, and the project is on schedule to be completed by the end of the year.
