Worthington Public Utilities will receive an increase in payments received for generation capacity from $2.97 per kilowatt per month to $5 per kilowatt per month in a new agreement with Missouri River Energy Services. The information was incorrect in Wednesday’s edition of The Globe. In that same story, it was referenced that two action items approved by the Water & Light Commission would need to advance to the Worthington City Council for final approval. In fact, the Commission action on these items was final and they will not be acted on by the Council.

In a separate case, another individual was sentenced on charges of fleeing a peace officer.
