City schedules power outage

The City of Minden is pleased to announce the completion of the repair work at the Gilark substation. We would like to inform residents that to finalize the project and remove the bypass jumpers, it will be necessary to conduct another planned power outage. This outage will impact the City of Minden for an estimated duration of up to 3 hours.

The removal of the bypass jumpers is a crucial step in ensuring the long-term stability and reliability of the substation, which directly affects the power supply to our community. This outage is scheduled to take place on at approximately 11 p.m. Thursday, October 19.

We understand the inconvenience that this temporary disruption may cause, and we sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this essential maintenance work. We kindly request residents to make necessary arrangements to mitigate any adverse impact during the outage, such as making sure electronic devices are charged and planning activities that do not rely on electricity.

The City of Minden remains committed to providing reliable and efficient power services to its residents. We will work diligently to minimize the duration of the outage and restore power as quickly as possible.
