Planned power outage delayed one week

Staff Writer

A Tennessee Valley Authority power outage planned in West Point this week has been rescheduled for early Feb. 14, according to city leaders.

The outage will be at 12:30 a.m. that morning and should last no more that a minute or two.

It originally was scheduled for this week, just after midnight Thursday or early Friday morning but delays in the set up forced it to be delayed until next week, according to West Point City Administrator Randy Jones.

The outage will allow the utility giant to switch the city's substation over to a temporary transformer on which the city will operate until major improvements to the city's main substation are completed by late spring or early summer.
