First District Congressman Ed Whitfield is raising concerns about a possible electric rate increase associated with the repairs to the Wolfe Creek Dam. The Congressman says the Army Corps of Engineers no longer considers the rehabilitation of the dam to be safety related. He says that distinction will determine how the repairs are paid for and could result in a 46% increase in electric rates in that area.
We’re checking into this further and will have a full report within the next few days. Still, I thought you would like to hear what the Congressman has to say.
