Preliminary study complete on city owned utility



KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The preliminary findings in a study on the feasibility of the city running the utilities here in the basin is complete.

$32.2 million is what it would cost the city to buy out Pacific Power electric operations, and turn them over into the hands of the Klamath Falls.

Pacific Power says they will not surrender their company here with out a fight, but the city of Hermiston, Oregon ended up controlling the power there via eminent domain after a similar feasibility study was done there.
