BLAIR – Should Burt County and Cuming County combine their Power Districts? Preliminary discussion on just that at a joint meeting late last month between the boards of those two entities. Another meeting to further discuss a potential merger is May 23rd in West Point at 9 a.m. in the Nielsen Center. Burt County Power serves rural areas of that county along with parts of Cuming, Washington, Dodge, Thurston county and the community of Decatur. Cuming County Public Power serves that county and the communities of Dodge, Beemer and Bancroft. The boards of both power companies say the talks are exploratory and actual merger would be some time away.
