Power outage cancels Red Wing city meetings Jan. 25

A power outage at Red Wing City Hall has caused at least two meetings to be canceled today.

A Sister Cities meeting at 7 p.m. and Sustainability Commission meeting at 5:15 p.m. were canceled in the wake the power outage.

The Red Wing Fire Department conducted a training exercise today at the fire hall adjacent to City Hall, according to Lynn Nardinger, deputy director of Public Services.

Water used during the exercise ran into an open trench, Nardinger said, that leaked into the basement at City Hall where it damaged an electrical panel.

Nardinger said the problem is expected to be repaired in the next couple of hours.
