Spencer Municipal Utilities (SMU) has purchased the former RR Donnelly facility located at 520 2nd Ave E in Spencer for $228,750 and plans to utilize the property to increase the amount of indoor storage space.

“Increasing our indoor storage space has several benefits including saving on transportation costs between facilities, assisting with maintaining better inventory and by helping protect equipment during inclement weather will improve the life of our equipment,” says Amanda Gloyd, SMU sales and marketing coordinator.

SMU will close on the property later this summer, and will begin preparing the building for use. “Our first plan is to get the roof prepared for the winter months ahead,” says Gloyd.

Spencer Municipal Utilities is a leading provider of cable, Internet, telephone and cellular service through i wireless in the Spencer community and has been providing water and electric services since 1886.
