(Aurora, Ind.) - Southeast Indiana REMC is closing its Aurora branch office for the next few months.
The electric utility cooperative announced Wednesday that because of safety concerns, it will close the Aurora office immediately.
A large hole that has been dug for the foundation of the utility's new Aurora office poses a safety risk to staff and visiting customers, said spokesman Barry Lauber.
The new Southeast Indiana REMC Aurora office is expected to open in January 2014.
