KENDALLVILLE – Indiana Michigan Power is taking steps to resolve the power issues affecting the Kendallville Public Library for years.
A scheduled outage early next Monday will allow the company to inspect and update the equipment on the main pole located on the building’s north side. Kissinger Electric, the company hired by the library for its electrical maintenance, will be present at that time to inspect library equipment for any long term damage caused by the frequent outages.
The scheduled power outage should last from around 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., but any complications that arise could push that time later, and could impact the library’s opening at 9:00 a.m. If the library must delay opening, notices will be posted to the library’s Facebook page and website.
After the maintenance work is complete, I&M officials will patrol the lines from the library to the substation to check for damage, tree limb obstruction, animal issues and outdated equipment.
Over the past six years, library staff documented numerous issues with the library’s electrical service, including disruptions and outages resulting in significant unexpected expenses and three insurance claims.
