Willmar Utilities finalizing dedication of turbines


WILLMAR -- Willmar Municipal Utilities officials are finalizing plans for a program to dedicate the city's two new wind turbines.

Utilities General Manager Bruce Gomm said local and state officials, members of Congress and Gov. Tim Pawlenty will be invited. The program would include an open house for the public to see the turbines.

The event may also be tied to a program by Citizens Energy Plan, a Willmar-area group promoting establishment of a national energy plan.
