Algona community citizens can feel justly proud of their municipal uHlities . . . 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 in itself — one that is consistently operating on a highly-efficient basis for the best good of all citiiens. The 1955 report of operations of your municipal utilities given in detail elsewhere in this "Report ol 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 of growth for the community. So, 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.
