Missouri Public Service Commission will hold formal hearings

The hearing schedule is as follows:
Jan. 22, 2002 through Jan. 25, 2002; Jan. 28, 2002 through
Jan. 30 2002; and Feb. 1, 2002, Feb. 4, 2002 through Feb.
These hearings will be held in room 310 of the Governor
Office Building, 200, Madison Street, in Jefferson City.
The Governor Office Building meets accessibility standards
required by the Americans With Disabilities Act. If any
person needs additional accommodations to participate
in the formal hearings, they should call the Public Service
Commission's hotline at 1-800-392-4211 (voice) or 1-800-829-7541
(TDD) prior to the hearing.
The Commission will hold local public hearings on Nov.
7 to give customers of MPS an opportunity to comment on
the rate request as well as to comment on any service
related problems. The locations for these hearings will
be released at a later date.
On June 8, MPS filed an electric rate case with the MPS
Commission seeking to increase electric revenues by approximately
$49.3 million (16.86 percent) a year. For a residential
customer using 1,000 kwh (kilowatts) per month, the proposed
increase would be approximately $14 a month.
MPS serves approximately 205,000 electric customers in
Missouri, including Platte County.
