Louisville, KY – Metro Councilman Kelly Downard (District 16) along with Hal Heiner (District 19), Jim King (District 10) and David Tandy (District 4) have filed a resolution asking the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s Public Service Commission to deny E.On AG’s request to impose new fees and higher usage rates for its customers until the matter of the sale of E.On’s North American Operations can be determined.
“E.On is publicly entertaining the idea of selling LG&E. An increase in rates now will increase the sale price for E.On, who will depart with these funds leaving the new owner with a need to ask for larger increases and having customers pay a bigger bill each month” – Councilman Kelly Downard
The Resolution will receive it’s first reading at the Thursday, March 11 2009 meeting of the Louisville Metro Council. The resolution is expected to be sent to the Transportation & Public Works Committee for review. A copy of the resolution is attached to this release.
