The Christian County TRIAD and Taylorville Police Department will be hosting an informational meeting on utilities on February 23rd. The meeting which will take place in the lower level of the Taylorville Municipal Building is designed to better inform the public about utility rates, power plant bail outs, and other concerns regarding public utilities.
Taylorville Chief of Police Brian Hile gave details on how the meeting took shape, and what guest speaker Scott Allen, outreach coordinator of the Citizens Utility Board will be discussing.
Hile said sometimes utility companies will use aggressive marketing techniques to try to persuade the consumer to switch. Those issues and questions will also be addressed during the meeting.
The meeting will begin at 9:30 am, and the public is encouraged to attend to learn more about their public utilities.
