At this week’s meeting, Island City’s city council voted to spend $1,150 for the purchase of a power inverter aimed at preventing Island City’s water system from shutting down during a power outage by adjusting the electrical current from a generator. The city had the option of replacing its generator with one that would fix a communication issue with the Walton Road well or purchasing a power inverter. The council decided against buying a new generator because the expense would be prohibitive.
