“We appreciate the quick responses we have received from OMPA regarding power supply issues and the engineering assistance our Distribution Superintendent has received regarding distribution issues,” said Mary Hays, Geary City Clerk.

The Authority’s mission remains on “providing reliable, low cost energy and services to municipal entities to enable each municipality to be competitive, while maximizing the benefit to our stakeholders.”
