Does anybody know when your Directors term expires. Two or three of them expire every year and I need to know when the Westmoreland Directors term ends. Another question that has been raised in other countys is how much do the Directors take for themselfs. A question of how honest they have been with us has been raised and a good way to judge that is by how much they take for their own pocket. That information seems to be a closely guarded secret even with the Directors being elected officials. Up here in Ky the Directors are the only elected officals with a top secret paycheck.

I was on prepay and they said i had to pay $300 to get back on monthly and that i coundn't make payments... When i actually saved enough to do so they boosted it up to $400...It's crazy they sucked me dry and would barely let my granmother do it for me even tho i work 6 to 6 everyday!!

You know there slogan "Buy from us or do without." And don't even think about trying to get a job with the A-holes. And no I have not tried or wanted to. They are just like NCTCC. Closer kin.

Is that Pre-Pay is the same as Pay as you go? I tell you what,I know someone that did that Pay as you go I guess or thats what they told me it was from Tri-County and they was being billed monthly as their Electric was running like $600-$700 per mo.They had to go to this Pay as you go I guess.Look here,they was using exactly the same things such as their Air-Conditioning Units and everything else and they were just using like $5.00-$7.00 per day in electricity.Do the Math on that.Also they won't always tell you either when there has been a rate hike in your Electricity either.I think they need to be looked into,just not one office but all of them.Also their Employees that handle peoples bills each month.I am glad I am not with Tri-County Electric but I tell you,I feel sorry for the ones that are though.It is a shame.

We do need some actual competition around here. That would be nice and refreshing. Then maybe our electric bills would not be going through the roof.

I have never had any problems w/ either company. Seems like people in Westmoreland just want something to fuss about.

That is true!!! Seems as I speak with several people that have service in the Tri Co. area they pretty much have to make a choice between putting food on the table to feed their families or paying such a very high electric bill.Very sad situation.

LOL. And I'm sure you're all s**ts and giggles whenever they raise the rates. They do not call it raising rates anymore. They now call it a fuel adjustment increase. Give me a break!!!

One to top it off, I was out of town for three week's, an actual total of 24 days, in preperation for being out of the house for that length of time I decided to empty my freezer and refridgerator, in the name of the lord my savior Jesus Christ I am telling this in all honesty and no stretching of the truth, I turned the main breaker off inside my house and also killed the main disconnect outside at my meter.... I understand it was february and very cold, but I had 100% disabled the possibility of electricity to enter my home period....My bill for that month just like it is when I'm home during the same period other years was just under 400.00, and you can't even debate with them, I hate monopolized a** businesses, wish they could be investigated. God Bless'Em.

Water and sewer!!! According to the city engineer, the sewer is on it's last leg. The mayor told the council that we will see if we can qualify for a grant...but he wants to spend $600,000 for a field that's appraised for 1/3 of that amount. If you complain to someone you are told that "people in Westmoreland just want something to fuss about." Havent had any problem with Tri-County but I watch my meter readings very close. Havent had problems with NCTC either except for their services are too expensive.

they say they base the rates on people around u.. they also ask how many in the home. they dont really read your meters anymore. when our kids moved out our bills stayed the same. just me and husband here and we stayed in one room. cooked very little and used space heater. our bill stayed same or higher. i finally complained and it went down some. but its back again. they do what they want to make up for ones who cant pay. it is all about money for them. and its not the workers in the office. they are trying to make living like us it is the big wigs. same with the water i agree. westmoreland has big wigs that run it all and they will line their pockets. this town does need some competition very badly. but they arent going to allow it in. they did that tunnel when they should have tried to improve the town. like the kids park. no bathroom. not much to play on. then they wonder why some kids get in trouble. and back to tri county.. my kids couldnt get lights on because they wanted 800 dollars.. based on income and credit and number of people in house. that is crazy. they were just starting out. someone does need to look into these things in our town but they cover their tracks pretty good..
