Festus purchasing backup generators for its facilities

The City of Festus will be purchasing several backup generators for several of its facilities. Festus Public Works Director Matt Unrine says many of the generators are several years old and needed to be replaced.

The generators will be purchased from CK Power in Festus and BRDA Electric in Fenton will do the installation and electrical work. The cost of the generators and the installation work will cost just over 360 thousand dollars and will be paid for with ARPA funds.
