 • Solar power meeting in Williams on Friday evening.

 Residents of Williams are invited to a meeting this Friday,December 9 at 7:00 p.m. at the Williams Public Library as the commmunity explore opportunities to work together to bring solar power to the community. Renewable Energy Product Manager Logan Welch will share his knowledge about the products,options and incentives for solar energy for individuals and communities. There will be a discussion about how Williams residents might do together to move the community as a greener community, to where the homes of its residents are connected to low cost, non polluting solar energy for people of every socio-economic level. During the early years of solar power, it could not compete with the cost of electric utilities. Solar energy has grid parity, meaning solar energy is equal to or less costly than energy from electric companies. Current incentives from federal and state government make solar energy more affordable now rather than later. Small rural communities attract families looking for low cost housing and safe environments, yet school consolidation is making Williams less attractive to potential new residents. Creating a green community will help sustain housing in Williams by giving the community something that stands out from other towns. Thus Williams can sustain the tax base that supports the infrastructures. The meeting is open to the public.

 • Report from Iowa Architectural Foundation on ideas for downtown Webster City to be presented at Monday's city council meeting.
 • Wright County Supervisors to meet Monday morning.
