End of Holland BPW Electrical Service in Laketown Twp. Nears

HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - The process for the Holland BPW to pull electric service from 630 residential customers in Laketown Township will formally begin tonight. The Holland City Council is expected to concur with the utility board’s recommendation to terminate following the rejection of the township’s proposed 30-year franchise agreement over expansion issues. The township wanted a provision that would require the utility to pay the municipality in lieu of taxes if any power plant is built there in the next three decades, something not in any pact with other communities. The Township Board, also meeting this evening, doesn’t have the matter on its agenda. Those affected customers will be transferred to Consumers Energy, which services the rest of the township.
