Plug-In Ceremony February 10

Yolo County and the City of Woodland will be celebrating the installation of electric vehicle charging stations in downtown Woodland with a Plug-In Ceremony on February 10 at noon in the City of Woodland municipal parking lot, located directly across from City Hall at 300 First Street in Woodland.
