Pella Cooperative Electric Gets FEMA Grant

Senator Tom Harkin has announced that Pella Cooperative Electric will be receiving more than $5.6 million to strengthen and replace power lines. The funds were granted through FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Program. The funds will be used to strengthen over 125 miles of power lines in Marion, Mahaksa, Jasper, Polk, and Poweshiek Counties, to better withstand the effects of strong storms. Senator Harkin says he congratulates PCE on the grants and looks forward to the improvements it will generate for the counties.
