Garrett Power Rate Reductions Coming Immediately
Wednesday, March 25, 2020

The Garrett Board of Works announced on Tuesday, following a resolution that was passed in a special session that Garrett’s electrical power users will see a rate reduction beginning with this month’s billing.

The electric rate tracker was eliminated from the next billing and going forward, which will result in immediate savings of about $6.31 per month, based on an average use of 950 kWh, to residential customers. Commercial and small power users also will see savings due to the elimination of the electric rate tracker.

Also Tuesday, Garrett Clerk-Treasurer Marcie Conkle announced that the city has no plans for utility shut-offs and residents will not incur penalties during the current coronavirus health emergency.

The Board of Works will meet again in special session at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 31st to open bids for the city’s garbage contract that expires at the end of May.
