ALGQNA PARTNERS IN f! -^ As the Comnnunity Municipal Utilities Will ; tight, Water To Your Supply i\&*^ rfi&frt «e ^ eat 6 * ^°° set ^ e »t V°^ *S$£*£S>^i~&&^^ '*££*• Introducing Our New Series Reproduced alright is one of a series yt messages that will be published in this newspaper regularly to tell you of interesting and helpful i itetns in the realm of Electricity, We hope you will find them of value, and as they appear we will welcome any com- inent you wisl| to' jive us. Fundamental to 'the growth and progress of any community is a constant and always available supply of Power, Light and Water. Vital to the upkeep of homes, these three essential items also enable business and industry to function, efficiently. When demands are made on the local supply of Power, Light and Water, these demands must be promptly met. Algona community citizens can feel justly proud of their municipal utilities . . . owned by them, and operated under careful supervision by a municipal utilities commission composed of local business-men. Actually, in the light and power plant. Algona has a major industry \n itself — one that is consistently ope,ra,ting on a highly-efficient basis for the best good of all citizens. '•'"'' The 1955 report of operations of your municipal utilities given in detail elsewhere in this "Report of Progress" is a good one, we believe. It shows considerable increase in,'' output for the year of both power and water — which is in itself a good indication ot growth for the community. $o, with continued' growth and expansion of the community, your municipal utilities — owned by you — stand ready and prepared to furnish the life-giving impetus of Power, Light and Water on as efficient and as low-cost a basis as it is possible to produce and distribute those vitally important products. ; ALGONA MUNICIPAL UTILITIES Members of the Utilities Commission: T.
