‘Ratepayers’ Forum’ Thursday at courthouse
Brandon Presley, Northern District public service commissioner, announces a “Ratepayers’ Forum” Thursday, Dec. 10, at the Marshall County Courthouse in Holly Springs from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The event is free, and the public is invited to attend.
This town-hall type meeting in Holly Springs is one in a series of events Presley has scheduled across the district in the coming months to hear directly from ratepayers and the general public.
“I wanted to give people a chance to come and talk to me, one on one, about their concerns regarding high utility rates and service, and how that affects their lives and businesses,” Presley said. “I also wanted to provide a forum where I can speak directly to the public about utility issues facing the PSC today and the major reforms I believe are necessary, and I want to give them the chance to ask their questions.”
In addition to updating the public on current issues, Presley plans to discuss his recently proposed “Ratepayers’ Bill of Rights,” financial assistance programs available to low-income ratepayers, as well as updates on the No Call Law and many other consumer-related topics.
