ERMU will celebrate Public Power Week

Elk River Municipal Utilities will celebrate Public Power Week, Oct. 6-12, along with more than 2,000 other electric utilities that collectively provide electricity on a not-for-profit basis to 47 million Americans.

“We who work for public power know how much Elk River Municipal Utilities benefits our community as a system governed and operated by the very customers we serve. At the core of our mission is our commitment for safety, reliability, workforce development, and system improvements,” said Troy Adams, ERMU general manager.
