Schroeder considers use of Minnesota Power maintenance building

Thu, 09/22/2016 - 12:18pm

With Minnesota Power’s Taconite Harbor Energy Center coal-fired power plant scheduled to be idled on September 26, there is a lot going on at the plant, General Manager David Rannetsberger said to Schroeder supervisors at their September 13 meeting.

One of those items is what to do with the maintenance building located across Highway 61 on the hill.  Rannetsberger presented a rough draft of a lease proposal for the building for supervisors to consider.

With the power plant on the lake closing, West End firefighters lose a valuable place to fill their pumper trucks. However, there is a 6,000-gallon water tank in the maintenance garage that firefighters could use, said Rannetsberger.

When asked the lease cost, Rannetsberger replied, “I was thinking about $250 per month, plus some snowplowing. If you lease the building we would want you to keep the lower road plowed as part of the agreement.”

Another part of that agreement would include Schroeder paying to heat the building while Minnesota Power would pay for the electricity.

Supervisor Roger “Bill” McKeever asked if Schroeder could switch propane companies because the township’s current provider is cheaper than the one who fills the tank for Minnesota Power. Rannetsberger said that option could be explored. He also said if the building was kept at 40 F or so it wouldn’t cost much to keep it heated.

“If we [Minnesota Power] want the building back we would give Schroeder 60 days notice,” he said.

Supervisor Bruce Martinson said the board would need the firefighters’ blessing before they pursued a lease, but early indications are that the building might be of good use to the township.

Free Medical Transportation for Veterans!

DAV operates a fleet of vehicles around the country to provide free transportation to VA medical facilities for injured and ill veterans. DAV stepped in to help veterans get the care they need when the federal government terminated its program that helped many of them pay for transportation to and from medical facilities. The vans are driven by volunteers, and the rides coordinated by almost 190 Hospital Service Coordinators around the country.

DAV has purchased 2,967 vehicles, worth nearly $65.1 million, that have been donated to Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers nationwide since the program began in 1987 to ensure that injured or ill veterans are able to get to their medical appointments.

Call the number 218-204-0693, or Veteran Services Officer Pat Strand at 218-387-3639 for more information!
