BARRABA, Thursday,

The Barraba Electricity Works has notified the municipal council of its intention to close down its plant at midnight on May 2, failing a satisfactory reply to its application for a renewal of the franchise.

It is understood that the Local Government Department has directed inquiries to be made as to the cost of the supply of electricity from Tamworth, and the municipal council at its last ordinary meeting decided to institute the necessary inquiries.
