Carey officials were focused on electricity during their Monday night meeting. The Courier reports village council approved a recommendation to spend more than $1.18 million for equipment to build a new substation near Continental Structural Plastics. The bids came in below the estimated $1.25 million.
Council also gave first reading to a modified electric rate increase. The current proposal would see rates raised 4 percent next year and 2 percent the following year. That differs from the original proposal, which called for a 2 percent raise annually through 2017. The money raised from the increase will help fund upgrades to the electrical system in the village.
