Group Launches Application for Wisconsin Specialty License Plate to Honor All Utility Workers
In order for the plate to be produced, the group needs to submit 500 signatures from licensed Wisconsin drivers who commit to purchasing the plates at a ONE-TIME cost of $15, which covers the cost of production. The group is also raising funds for the development and design fee, which is $15,500. The purpose of the plate is to honor and recognize all persons working to ensure Wisconsinites have access to safe, affordable, and reliable electricity.
Vehicles that qualify to display the specialty plates include automobiles, motor homes, private trucks weighing 8,000 pounds or less, and farm trucks weighing 12,000 pounds or less.
The group promoting the “Keeping the Lights On” specialty plates hopes to complete the process and make the plates available to the public by April of 2021.

Make it Count
Back when I was in college in 1980, I was elected to the Jamestown Town Board in southern Grant County. We monitored the national census very closely. Preliminary numbers indicated we had a sizable population drop that was going to affect the amount of shared revenue we would receive over the next 10 years. A big hit is hard to take, especially for small towns and villages. We took matters into our own hands and decided to do our own headcount. I’m so glad we did.
