[ARCHIVED] Alliant Energy Franchise Agreement

Alliant Energy Franchise Agreement

The Community Services Division has been working with Alliant Energy this year on the renewal of their electric franchise agreement with the City. The current franchise agreement, which was for a 25-year period, was approved by City Council on October 20, 1993. These agreements address numerous items including the construction and maintenance of the electric distribution system, restrictions on improvements in the City right-of-way, relocation of electric facilities for City projects, tree trimming around overhead lines, placement of signs or banners on utility poles, and milestone dates for review or cancellation of the agreement. Following a final review by both party’s legal teams, the agreement is expected to be presented to City Council for their consideration of approval later this fall.
