In an attempt to reduce their costs and modernize, Manitoba Hydro is closing a total of 24 district offices, beginning in January 2014.

 

The Westman closures will be in Souris, Carberry, Minnedosa, Birtle and MacGregor.                                                                      

 

The closures are an effort to save approximately 2 million dollars a year, and 50 million in future costs.

 

Glen Schneider of Manitoba Hydro tells CKLQ that people dont use their offices as much.
