GEORGETOWN, Texas — Families in Georgetown are seeing price hikes on their energy bills and Tuesday they will have the chance to share their thoughts about the issue.
The average monthly electric bill went up by $12.82 at the beginning of February. That's on top of a base rate increase of $4.80 that went into effect in January.
City leaders claim they paid too much for energy, so they had to raise the rates. Now they're looking into having a third party review energy management.
Tuesday night, members of the Texas Public Policy Foundation are hosting a meeting to talk about the increases. It starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Georgetown Public Library.
