 **FEBRUARY’S ARCTIC BLAST EVENT**

Many customers continue to inquire about how February’s energy crisis will affect their electric bill with the City of Haven.  That information has finally become clear.

First, you should know that the effects of February’s arctic blast event cost Kansas Power Pool, the City’s electric provider, more than $18 million.  The City of Haven represents about 13.5% of the Kansas Power Pool membership, meaning the City’s share of those costs would potentially be around $275,000.  While the Kansas Power Pool Board of Directors voted not to pass along all of those costs to Kansas Power Pool members, they did vote to put into place a “Feb 2021 Storm Surcharge” to work toward replenishing Kansas Power Pool’s cash reserves, which were completely wiped out due to the energy crisis.  This surcharge is expected to be in place for approximately twenty-four months. 

As a result of that surcharge, at the April 5, 2021, meeting, the Haven City Council voted to implement a power cost adjustment of $.02 / kWh to cover the additional expenses from February’s arctic blast event.   Starting with the utility bills set to go out next week, this charge will appear on every City of Haven electrical customer’s bill as a new line item labeled “PCA Storm Srchg” and will continue to be billed until the “Feb 2021 Storm Surcharge” is no longer charged to City of Haven by Kansas Power Pool.

We are thankful for our fortunate position due to membership in the Kansas Power Pool.

Mayor

City of Haven Pool Work Continues

Many citizens continue to inquire as to the status of the renovations and improvements to the City Pool. At the current time, the city is engaged in litigation in Reno County district court related to the City Pool project and all parties to the litigation are working diligently to find resolutions to the dispute. 

Multiple engineering firms and contractors are aware of the concerns of the city and working on remedies to resolve the concerns. There is no question that the complicated nature of lawsuits and construction cause delay well beyond what the parties would hope for fixing the pool. At this time, there is little hope that the pool will be operational for any portion of the 2021 season, but everyone involved is trying to seek out creative solutions to ensure that the pool is operational for our citizens as soon as possible. 

Please continue to read press releases and social media updates for more information as it becomes available.

Adam Wright,
Mayor
City of Haven
