The Ruston Town Council will be holding a public hearing on May 2nd at 6:00PM in the Mary Joyce Community Center to discuss a potential increase in our electric utility rates. The increase is being sought to offset the wholesale rate increase the town incurred from Tacoma Power. There is another increase already slated for 2012 from Tacoma Power so council will be evaluating implementing a two step increase in order to keep pace with our rising wholesale electric costs. Everyone is encouraged to attend and give your input on this topic.
