Sheridan City Councilman John Heath Rebuts Office of Consumer Advocate Recommendation

Yesterday, we reported that the Consumer Advocate recommendation for a proposed MDU rate increase would be better at 8%, rather than the average 31% request put before the Public Service Commission. In hearing that report, Sheridan City Councilman John Heath had this response.

Mayor Dave Kinskey asked Heath to head a subcommittee to review the MDU rate increase proposal.

Heath says that of course we want a strong MDU, but now is not the time to have the customers incur a cost to WYGEN III that was negotiated back in 2007 and 2008 when the economy was stronger. He stresses again -- not 31%, not 8%, but 0% -- NO increase in MDU rates.

Wow, this guy has a head on

Wow, this guy has a head on his shoulders. What is he doing in Sheridan ? It sounds like he is going to buy customers TIME, but as I said before rates will raise in time. Take this time and START looking into off grid and grid tie products.

Thank you!!! I dont know if I could take another increase!

Just a little correction.

The proposed MDU increase is no longer at 31% average across all classes. Not that there is much change but they filed a supplemental request that lowered the average proposed increase to 25% across all classes. Just thought you'd like to know. Source is video on home page of


Right on Councilman Heath, I say 0% increase to MDU as well. Thanks for your support!
