Kingston Public Forum: Speak Out Against Proposed Central Hudson Rate Hikes

  • Kingston City Hall Council Chambers, 420 Broadway Kingston Kingston, NY 12401 USA (map)

Central Hudson (Fortis) has proposed a new rate plan for 2017-2018 that contains a number of questionable spending items and calls for an increase in fixed charges to customers - already the highest in the state - as well as a new type of residential customer charge. The Public Service Commission is holding public hearings on this plan in Poughkeepsie, Kingston, and Newburgh. This is the chance to make our voices heard! Information sessions will be held one hour prior to each hearing. 

Information Sessions: 2pm & 6pm
Public Hearings: 3pm & 7pm

We need to fill the room and make our voices heard!

Please help spread the word! A big turnout at these hearings will send a powerful message to Central Hudson and the PSC.
