The City of Goodland celebrated 75 years in their current Power Plant yesterday. It was a great day. The Power Plant employees opened the Power Plant up to the community and gave people tours so they could see the engines that power our City. The plant was built in 1937 and started generating electricity in 1938. Some of the original engines are still in operation. All of Goodland's engines are Fairbanks-Morse engines. Representatives from Fairbanks-Morse came down to be at the reception and they provided the refreshments. Power Plant Superintendent Rod Blake said that he and his crew enjoys working for the people in the City and providing this valuable service to them. Congratulations Rod! Good Job - Here's to another 75 years!
