Kiowa Council considers partial solar power, enforcement on trash pickup violation
May 5, 2021
All members attended the special meeting of the Kiowa City Council last week, including Mayor Bill Watson, B.J. Duvall, Brian Hill, R.L. Simpson, Jason Thayer and Tom Wells. City Administrator Sam Demel and City Clerk Cady Tucker also sat at the council table.
After much discussion, the council agreed to look into solar power as a partial source for generating electricity for the city. This would be funded with government tax rebates. Plus the possibility of pilot projects with rural development, Demel explained. The council authorized Demel to enter an agreement with POW Solar LLC.
