A mandatory pre-bid meeting will be held at Norway City Hall at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 20th, 2015.

Quotes must be received by City Hall (at the address given above) no later than 4:00 p.m. (local time) on Thursday, September 3rd, 2015.

View, download, and/or print NEW utility service rates, effective July 1st. 
ATTENTION NORWAY CABLE CUSTOMERS:  Because our Cable Department has acquired new channels that it must "make room" for early in September, ALL customers must reprogram their television sets in order not to lose local digital channels NBC, FOX UP, and GRIT (6-1, 6-2, and 6-3).  *Even customers not receiving HD channels must reprogram to avoid losing channels.  New channels are NFL HD and BIG 10 HD.  Stay tuned.   
Detroit Tigers
Due to Major League Baseball rules and regulations, any home game of the Detroit Tigers will be blocked from airing on TBS, channel 33, effective July 12th.  Check local listings for other networks carrying the games.  We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
*Note:  ABC Marquette, which delivers our channels 5 and 10 (or channels 10-1 and 10-2), is striving to improve its capacity for distribution.  While the process is moving forward, there is and will be some hiccups.  Due to microwave issues that ABC is currently experiencing, our channels 5 and 10 are displaying some intermittent audio and video problems.  ABC staff are working to correct these.  Norway's Cable Department is not the point of origin of the complications, and as such, our Cable Department staff cannot initiate corrective measures.

Norway Vulcan Area Schools
Back to school!  Don't forget about a checklist and supplies.  Need to make different daycare arrangements? Have orientations to attend?  The City wishes all Norway Vulcan area students, parents, and school staff the very best this fall; have a great calendar and academic year!
Be sure to visit our Jake Menghini Historical Museum to see their special display celebrating the 50th anniversary of the consolidation of Norway and Vulcan schools.  Find out about tours and memberships at their webpage.
Almost done with high school?
It takes a village--and then some.  Keep in mind that for those young adults graduating from Norway Vulcan Schools, there may be local, state, and/or federal resources available to minimize financial barriers to higher education.

Have you heard about the annual scholarship awarded by Norway Public Utilities, with support from WPPI Energy?  It goes to either one (1) or two (2) high school seniors who plan to attend a.) a technical college that offers an Electrical Power Distribution program, b.) a technical college that offers an Electrical Engineering program, or c.) a technical college that offers an Engineering program.  (Priority is allocated in that order.  We apologize for the earlier misprint that specified Wisconsin schools; these programs are allocated priority, regardless of their location.)  See who won this year.
Celebrate Public Power Week with us--you might win prizes for it!  Staff members of both Norway Public Utilities and WPPI Energy will station themselves in City Hall's lobby for two business days during the week of October the 5th through the 9th.  Stop by with your most recent utility bill to verify your good standing as account holder, and chances are, you'll walk away with one of our hundreds of prize packages.  While you're there, enter to win one of four (4) grand prizes by leaving your name, phone number, and email address.  *To be valid, grand prize entries must be from current customers of electricity through City of Norway whose name is on the utility bill account and whose utility bill balance is not past due--and must include first & last name, a working phone number, and an up-to-date email address.  One entry per account (regardless of the number of addresses on the account), one grand prize package per entry.  Thank you in advance for your participation.  We are very much looking forward to this year's Public Power Week community giveaway.
