Update from Evergy: The Evergy planned outage for Wednesday, May 19th – at 8:00 a.m. has been cancelled. With the impending weather forecast and to keep from having our customers, out of lights twice in a short period of time, this work has been set out for about 6 weeks.
Evergy needs to replace a transmission structure that is at risk of failure. The work is scheduled for Wednesday, May 19 at 8 a.m. and is expected to take about three hours. This will require interrupting power to about 700 customers in the area of Beto Junction and Waverly, including surrounding rural customers. Without this repair, the area is at risk for an unplanned, emergency outage that could affect more customers and last longer. Evergy is sorry for the inconvenience.
Waverly Grade School parents, please let us know if any of these items belong to your child. Some have been in lost and found for months. We would like to reunite them with their owners ASAP. Thanks!

Coffey County Patrons: We need your help to put together an accurate Coffey County internet map. After this past year, we have learned how important internet service is and how it affects our daily lives. It is truly an essential service we cannot be without in today’s world. We know there are places in Coffey County where reliable and affordable internet service is not available. Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) indicates Coffey County is 99.5% served with 25/3 MBPS service (Source: 2019 FCC Broadband Deployment Report published July 24, 2019). This information currently prohibits Coffey County from receiving Federal and State money being awarded to help rural Americans get adequate internet service. This is where we need your help to put together an accurate internet access map of Coffey County. How can you help? Click this link http://madtel.com/coffey-county-test-your-speed to take an internet speed test. This test will take less than 2 minutes and simply asks for you to enter your address. There is also an option if you do not have available services at your address. This test can be performed at multiple locations, or if you do not have internet at your home, it can be done from any public access point, such as a library. Personal information is not retained, only your location and speed test results, which will be used to create a plotted map. This information and crowdsourcing map is a critical step in the process of getting all Coffey County citizens access to adequate internet service. We hope to take this map to the FCC to prove the inaccuracy of their current map. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
Unfortunately, elementary yearbooks did not come in this week. We will be sending out notifications when they arrive, so arrangements can be made for distribution and pick up. Have a great summer!
