As of Friday afternoon, over 150 people had signed the petition being circulated by “Citizens of Livingston for Fair and Equitable Rates,” the coalition of residents and business owners that is gathering signatures to petition the Public Utility Commission of Texas for a review of the City of Livingston’s electric service rates.
“We’re seeking a remedy for the ongoing lack of transparency from our city officials and the outrageous electric rates assessed on City of Livingston electric customers,” Joshua Grant said.
“If you have not yet signed the petition, we will be in front of Patron Grill from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday for anyone who would like to sign. Please share with your friends, family and neighbors who live in the city limits of Livingston and are registered to vote,” Grant said.
“We are making excellent progress with the petition, but we still have a ways to go. We need a bare minimum of 276 signatures and would like to have between 350-500 with 3 weeks left to file our petition with the state. While we are happy with the progress, we could really use help canvassing neighborhoods going door to door to gather more. If you’re able to dedicate one evening or more to canvassing in your or another neighborhood, please let me know,” Grant said.
