TIPP CITY - The City of Tipp City is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Public Power Week, October 2-8, along with more than 2,000 other public power utilities across the nation. The observance celebrates the advantages public power provides to 46 million American customers.
“The City of Tipp City has been providing a public service to our community since 1897.
They depend on us, “Christy Butera, Director of Utilities, said. “We take great pride in being a public power system and doing everything we can to keep the power on and provide safe, efficient service.”
To celebrate Public Power Week, The City of Tipp City invites the community members to participate in the Mercury Exchange Program. On Wednesday, October 5th, 2011, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Tipp City Municipal Utilities will be exchanging mercury fever thermometers and mercury switches in exchange for digital thermometers.
To exchange thermometers and switches, residents should bring them to the Service/Planning Department window, in the City Government Center, 260 S. Garber Drive, in the thermometer’s original plastic case or sealed in two plastic bags. Not to be confused with alcohol thermometers, mercury thermometers contain silver liquid, whereas alcohol thermometers contain red or blue liquid. Only mercury thermometers will be exchanged.
