PSC chairman to discuss utility rate hikes


The DeKalb NAACP will have its general membership and community breakfast meeting on Jan. 25, 10 a.m., at Salem Bible Church, 5460 Hillandale Drive, Stonecrest.

Georgia Public Service Commission Chair Lauren “Bubba” McDonough is the guest speaker for the meeting.  McDonough will discuss his role and the PSC’s recent approval of rate hikes for Georgia Power and Atlanta Gas Light customers. New rates took effect this month.  According to a news release from the Public Service Commission, Georgia Power will collect $1.77 billion of a proposed $2.2 billion increase from 2020 through 2022.

DeKalb NAACP President Teresa Hardy said the branch plans to hold the February and March meetings at Salem Bible Church on the fourth Saturday. The organization is looking at other locations for the next quarter and beyond to empower the community at-large, Hardy said.

“The whole idea is to get more people to come out and receive information. We will have different guest speakers to educate the public and they will also learn firsthand what the NAACP is doing in the community,” said Hardy.

The meetings will focus on voter education, the census and wealth creation.

There is no charge to attend the meeting.

The City of Stonecrest is sponsoring the breakfast.
