Public, private energy the focus of Logansport forum

LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WLFI) – Logansport residents heard more information about the pros and cons of public and private energy in a forum Wednesday.

More than one hundred people filled McHale Performing Arts Center to listen and ask questions of three experts on public and private energy.

While public power utilities typically offer better prices and service, the city may be able to gain more money from a private utility.

“Those people are concerned about their jobs and rightly so, but there’s plenty of work to be done and I would like to see them do something else for the benefit of Logansport,” said Logansport resident Mercedes Brugh.

As News 18 has already reported, the city is in negotiations with a private company to build a power plant that turns solid waste into energy. Mayor Ted Franklin told News 18 it’s too early for any announcement for any potential plant.

A Logansport Utilities Service Board Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday night.
