Every year on the second Monday of April, electric utilities across the country take time to thank the dedicated men and women who work to keep the lights on in their community.

Since 1914 the professional men and women of the Garden City Electric Department are often the first responders during blizzards, severe thunderstorms and other catastrophic events that occur. They work with thousands of volts of electricity high atop powerlines and put their life on the line every day without a lot of fanfare and recognition. When the power goes out, these public power men and women leave their families and face the obstacles that are sure to come, and they face them head-on. Restoring power to our public power community is priority one.

So If you see a lineworker, take a moment to thank them for all they do to keep the lights on, ensuring and enhancing our quality of life here in Garden City. Because we are Community Powered!
