Morgan City was recently recognized by the Intermountain Power Superintendents Association with two awards. The first, the organization’s Safety Leadership Award, was presented for achieving five consecutive years without a lost time accident. The second award was the IPSA 2023 Safety Award for achieving a low accident frequency last year. At the March 26 city council meeting Morgan Power Foreman Clark Crook and former IPSA chairman gave a brief background on the organization and presented the awards to Morgan City. IPSA provides an 8,000-hour apprenticeship training program for journeymen linemen. “The guys have done really good and they’ve done everything they’re supposed to do and we haven’t had any accidents in the [past] five consecutive years,” Clark said. “They've been up in all kinds of weather; this is way impressive, Mayor Steve Gale commented. City Manager Ty Bailey praised IPSA and the Morgan City employees. “It’s really a good organization and they've recognized [Morgan City] for safety which I attribute to Clark and our guys but it really does take some leadership,” he said. λ
