The city of Pella is being forced to take a wait-and-see approach for any future plans for the city’s power plant. Electric Services Director Larry Peterson says because of pending legislation, executive orders from the White House and changing guidelines from the Environmental Protection Agency, no concrete plans can be laid out for improvements or equipment replacement. Peterson says his department’s goal right now is to continue providing quality service to Pella residents and be prepared for possible future changes.
