From the City of Linton:
Candlelight may bring some romance soon, or at least that is our positive spin on an otherwise confusing time because alarm clocks do not go off when they are supposed to and make those that didn’t check those backup batteries beforehand late. But here is a notice to prevent that early-morning rushing around to get to work:
Linton’s electric supplier, Duke Energy, has informed the City of Linton that there will be a city-wide power outage, scheduled for later this month. The actual notice from the City is embedded below:
As the notice says, the purpose of the estimated 5-hour outage is to make upgrades to their transmission lines that feed the City.
In an effort to take advantage of this already planned outage, our Electric Department will be making upgrades to our Vincennes Street substation during this same time.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding. We
also want to thank our linemen for working in the middle of the night, to minimize interruption for customers during higher use times.
