THE FAIRMONT CITY COUNCIL MONDAY HEARD A PRESENTATION FROM DAVE GESCHWIND, C E O AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF SMMPA, ABOUT THE SOUTHERN MINNESOTA MUNICIPAL POWER AGENCY'S 40 YEAR RELATIONSHIP AS A WHOLESALE ENERGY PROVIDER FOR FAIRMONT AND 17 OTHER MINNESOTA COMMUNITIES.

HE SAID THE AGENCY CAME ABOUT DURING THE ENERGY CRISIS IN 1977. THE FIRST PROJECT UNDERTAKEN BY THE FLEDGLING OPERATION WAS CONSTRUCTION OF THE COAL FIRED GENERATION PLANT SHERCO 3.

DAVE TALKED ABOUT HOW SMMPA HAS EXPANDED ITS ENERGY RESOURCES TO INCLUDE BOTH WIND AND SOLAR PROJECTS. THE AGENCY HAS MADE THE DECISION TO NOT RAISE ELECTRIC RATES TO MEMBER COMMUNITIES FOR NEXT YEAR AND THE CITY OF FAIRMONT IS EXPECTED TO PASS THAT ALONG TO CONSUMERS IN THEIR FINAL BUDGET FOR NEXT YEAR.

THE COUNCIL WELCOMED TWO NEW PART-TIME POLICE OFFICERS - DAYTON ASMUS AND ANDREW KUESTER - BOTH GRADUATES OF ALEXANDRIA TECHNICAL AND COMMUNITY COLLEGE. DAYTON ASMUS IS FROM FAIRMONT AND ANDREW KUESTER IS FROM NEW ULM.
