Power Outage Scheduled

Not sure how many people are going to be directly affected, but I always find it a bit annoying when the lights go out, so you may want to know that the Cookeville Electric Department will have a brief 30-minute outage at their North Cookeville Substation on the morning of Saturday June 27th at 4:00am. They say the outage is required to perform maintenance to ensure station reliability. The areas affected will be the Washington Avenue area north of 8th Street and most areas north of 10th Street that are east of Willow Avenue. Officials say it's pretty much the same area that was affected by an outage back on April 25th. They say they hope this will be the last one they need to schedule -- for awhile.
