Set a new president for this type thing. Soon many will follow. It's just like passing any other laws, like Amber Alerts, etc. takes some time and effort but have faith, it can be done. Time for everyone to stand up and recognize the working man. Good luck, keep us posted if u decide to move forward with this.
I guess you mean "Set a new precedent," eh amigo?

has anyone ever attended an open town meeting,if 3 or 4 people show up that would be as close to a full house as it gets.nobody ever shows up to challenge them on raising rates,so we had a chance to give them a opposing opinion and no one showed up including myself,so why complain now?they do not do any heavy advertising of up coming meetings,but if we wanted to really know about the time and dates,that info could have made available at your request.so we only have ourselves to blame for our apathy.

I for one had no idea this was even coming. I also didn't know that they held any type of meetings. I know that ignorance is not always an excuse, but how were people supposed to know the utility company was going to raise the rates?

And one other thing...I am not necessarily complaining about them raising the rates. It's how MUCH they have raised them that concerns me. I was only home for like a week and a half during the month this bill was for. You tell me how my bill was up almost $200 from the last bill?

Look at your bill it was for 34 days that is one reason it's higher the sewer rates are terrible. People better put in septic tanks or run in a ditch like 1/2 of people do city sewage is way too high! What do you do, pay it or cut it off. I sure like air conditioning!

I'm assuming our bills have went up to compensate for the gas of their trucks. They sit all day at Shell and it's been hot so they've left it running to sit in the cool ac all day. My child is 9 and they told me today, "Mom I want to work at Barbourville Utilities when I grow up because they sit at the Shell all day and get paid to do nothing!" Hello people! lol
Is it the same truck I always see up on Artemis road???? Wonder where it's been???????

Sounds to me like there is not enough work or someone not doing their work. Wonder why utility trucks wondering around. Just watch u seen em! Shell an artemis road Boss needs to check out both trucks ???? SOme body fixing something not lectric

I agree with all of you. My bill went up like crazy an its never been this high before. I said since Randle retired it has went to hell in a hand basket an fast. The guy that took his place is a prick an smartass to talk to.. I got dish to do away with their cable an I am switching to gas an that only leaves Internet an water. But if I could get rid of everything to do with them all together I would... I said all the extra charges are going to pay their bills, mommas bills, sisters an brothers an aunts an uncles.... I am fed up with it I am going to find out who I need to contact an I will post for you all to call...

What has not went up? WAGES! We all grip and complain about one specific thing electric/water/sewer because it is all together one time a month. Now if you bought gasoline one time a month that would be a complaint also. Groceries are spread out daily/weekly and you don't pay any attention how much they are costing. Example: I bought tuna for $1.25, in less than one week it jumped to $1.39. That's .11cents. I don't know what people are going to do! It's everything not just utilities. People are not getting more money but paying more for everything.
Who's fault?

No I do not work for the utility company I am a customer just like you that paid $100 more thus month for electric. I know nothing about any boss or employee getting discount rates. I'm just saying if we want these conviences we pay for them. I like being able to sleep at night in air condition and I like tuna too, so if I want those things I have to pay more to enjoy. If I go on vacation or trips to Corbin, I have to pay high gas prices to do that. But my paycheck has not been raised to off set these increases so I have two options, pay and shut up or cut my electric down, stay home and eat sardines instead of tuna. That's my opinion only. Do what you gave too!!!!!!
