Gas rate hearing to be held in Cape

Sunday, November 2, 2003

The Missouri Public Service Commission will hold a public hearing Tuesday to help determine whether AmerenUE should be allowed to increase its revenue by raising natural gas rates.

The hearing will be at 6 p.m. at the Show Me Center and will begin with a 30-minute information session. Customers are welcome to bring service problems with AmerenUE before the commission as well as comment on the proposed rate increase.

According to filings with the Public Service Commission, the energy company seeks to increase annual natural gas revenue by $26.7 million, which would be about $16.26 more per natural gas customer per month. Under consideration are the costs of providing service to customers.

Formal hearings on the issue will begin Jan. 5 at the Governor Office Building in Jefferson City. For more information about the issue, call the commission office at (800) 392-4211.

AmerenUE provides natural gas service to about 111,000 natural gas customers in Missouri.
