News editor

Power to Marion residents will be interrupted from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. January 15 and 16 so switchgear and substations can be repaired.

On the 15th the entire town will be without power, but only certain parts of the city will be out on the 16th.

The city building will be open for residents who must have continued electricity.

Notices will be sent in January’s statements, through social media and television, and by employees knocking on doors. For more information, contact the city office.

Due to the number of power surges throughout Marion, the city will offer a whole house surge protection device for $229 per household which can be paid in three installments.

The unit plugs in at the homeowner’s meter, requiring no internal breaker work.

Director of economic development Randy Collett told council members Marion City library received one of only five awards in Kansas for exemplary services.

At the county commission’s request city administrator Roger Holter asked the council for a recommendation on whether they would prefer to keep Marion as one district or split in half.

The council’s recommendation was to split the city into north and south wards.
