Ribbon cut on new Lake Country Power service center

A new facility built in Cohasset, Minnesota, that will serve as a long-standing investment by Lake Country Power (LCP) in the community is now open.

The Cohasset Service Center replaces a former, overcrowded building the electric cooperative owns in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. The service center will not only help meet LCP’s mission to provide members with safe and reliable service but is also designed to meet the membership’s present and future needs.

Greg Randa, Lake Country Power general manager, cuts the ribbon following a program to dedicate the cooperative’s new Cohasset Service Center.

Representatives from LCP, HAWK Construction, Architectural Resources, Inc., and the City of Cohasset recently held a ribbon-cutting event in honor of the project.

“A cooperative is made up of a community of members, said Greg Randa, LCP general manager, at the event. “This project was made possible by working together with Cohasset community leaders, our board of directors, our local workforce and local contractors who all worked together with us to make it happen.”

Other key benefits to the Cohasset Service Center include better storage for equipment and vehicles; improved space to alleviate crowded work spaces; better warehouse inventory organization; improved security, safety and efficiency throughout the property; and safer access for members, employees and guests.
