Since 1989, I have owned and operated Curt’s Famous Meats in Independence. For many years we experienced many power outages and since 90 percent of our merchandise is fresh meat, a power outage of more than 2-3 hours can be devastating.

After Leon Daggett became director of Independence Power and Light, I shared with him our ongoing issues that had never been resolved. Mr. Daggett and his staff went to work and solved this serious issue for Curt’s Famous Meats. Thankfully, we have not had an outage in more than six years. Kudos to Leon Daggett and his outstanding staff.
