Preston Public Utilities began Operation Spare Change Round Up in the summer of 2013. To date, over $600.00 has been collected in “spare change”. The spare change, combined with PPU’s $500.00 matching funds were donated to Preston Historical Society to modify and enhance Preston’s downtown historical walking tour. This FREE walking tour is available to all area households, their guests, and Preston tourists. Walking tour brochures can be obtained at many Preston businesses and area lodging and attractions. To download the tour & map, go to: http://www.prestonmnchamber.com, Preston’s chamber & tourism website.

The residents of Preston and Preston business owners have overwhelmingly supported the Spare Change Round Up program. In year one, participation is currently at 11%, which is slightly over the program’s participation projections. For those of you that would like to enroll, you can sign up to round up your monthly bill at any time by contacting Preston Public Utilities.
