Town Council has authorized the installation of a natural-gas electric generator to be installed at the Community Hall. The generator will provide power to both the hall during power outages. The generator will be installed by Packard Electric at a cost of $13,280.00.
Currently, the town has a shortage of buildings capable of providing emergency shelter for residents in the event of a prolonged power outage. The installation of the generator at the hall will greatly improve the communities ability to address this problem. The Community Hall (Large/Small Halls) has a capacity to provide emergency shelter for 490 people. It will also benefit the hall to have power available during short outages that may occur when events are being held in the hall.
This will be the second generator installed at municipal buildings this year. Earlier this year, the Gull Lake Fire Board installed a generator at the Emergency Services Building.
Santa Claus came to town Dec. 2 at the Lyceum Theatre in Gull Lake. For more than twenty years, the theatre has hosted an annual Santa Day for members of the community and surrounding area. The small yet nicely renovated theatre has been in operation since 1912.
