City approves power plant substation acquisition

(KNZA)--The Horton City Commission has approved the acquisition of the Horton interconnect energy substation from Evergy.

The Commission at their March 6 meeting voted to authorize Mayor Byran Stirton to sign a letter of engagement and bill of sale drafted by Evergy.

According to the meeting minutes, the city will acquire the listed assets for $10, and the substation will be transferred to the city after Evergy removes metering, signs and padlocks.

Horton will own and maintain the substation assets along with the conductor over Highway 73 north of Evergy's new metering point.

Evergy will construct a new 34.5 kilovolt metering point for the city of Horton, south of the substation. Evergy will own and maintain the new metering point.

The estimated cost to the city of Horton is $17,000.

Commissioners discussed raising electric rates or meter charges to offset the cost.
