in
$15m in savings expected

Ruston electric utility customers stand to save as much as $15 million in energy costs over the next five years thanks to the terms of a new power supply contract approved Monday night by the Board of Aldermen.

All workers were allowed back into the courthouse by 9:15 a.m.
