What's Happening Around the Village!
Attention Village of Springville Residents- Scheduled Power Outage:
On October 2nd, 2016, the Village of Springville Electric Department will again be having a scheduled power outage. The outage will take place between the hours of 4am to 10am. This outage is a necessity in order to continue our transmission line maintenance. The amount of repairs completed during these outages will hopefully reduce our chances of weather related issues with the winter season fast approaching. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter! Click here for flyer:
