City of Vermillion dealing with electric service dispute with Clay Union Electric

VERMILLION, S.D.(WNAX)- An electric service dispute between the City of Vermillion and Clay-Union Electric is not a preview of another legislative battle.

Public Utilities Commission Chairman Chris Nelson says they looked at a small change in electric service territory.

Nelson says the legislature last year didn’t find a resolution between municipal power providers and rural cooperatives and says the Vermillion situation is not really related.

The Highway 50 bypass on the north side of Vermillion is being rebuilt with new streetlights as part of the project.
