Money and power in Mulgrave
By Lois Ann Dort
MULGRAVE – It's been over a year since Mulgrave residents lost their only financial institution in the town and with it their only access point for ready cash. During this week's regular council meeting on Monday, December 15 staff was happy to report that a new ATM had been installed in the Strait Superport building on Main Street; the former location of the Credit Union. Mayor Lorne MacDonald said the return of the ATM service was welcome news.
There was more good news on the offing at council on Monday; the Celtic Current Community Wind Project is now online and producing power. The single turbine is located two km from the Town of Mulgrave near Morrisons Lake and will produce 2.4 MW of wind energy according to the project description.
Mulgrave has also secured the final signatures necessary for easements to erect power poles to supply three-phase power to the new water treatment plant. MacDonald told The Journal they expect to have the poles in early in the new year.
