Black Hills Energy Donates $2,000 to Fayette

4 26 17 Laura presents Black Hills Energy check to Kris

Laura Roussell (Senior Community Affairs Manager with Black Hills Energy) presented a check for $2,000 to Fayette City Administrator Kris McGrane.

After learning that Upper Iowa University and the City of Fayette teamed up to hire Zachary Mannheimer to conduct a Community Placemaking Economic Assessment, Black Hills Energy wanted to show their support. Black Hills Energy presented a check to the City of Fayette for $2,000 to represent their commitment toward making our communities better places to live and work. Mike Fastenau, Black Hills Energy Economic Development Manager, wrote a letter to Fayette Mayor Andrew Wenthe stating “The opportunity afforded Fayette to bring in the Community Placemaking program is indicative of the community’s desire to make its future rather than just letting it happen.” Fastenau goes on to say “The creative placemaking undertaking provides all the citizens of Fayette the chance to be a part of shaping what the future Fayette will feel and look like.” Mannheimer gave a presentation to the Fayette City Council earlier this year. Later, the Council voted to partner with Upper Iowa University and hire Mannheimer for the assessment. Mannheimer has already started meeting with Fayette residents and a community-wide meeting will be scheduled in the near future.
