Save the date: Public meeting with the Hydro One Ombudsman

Do you have questions or concerns about your Hydro One bill? Then please mark Friday, June 10 on your calendar and join me as I host the Hydro One Ombudsman at a public meeting for West Carleton-March residents.

Fiona Crean, the newly appointed Ombudsman, will be our special guest for the evening and will be answering questions from residents and addressing their concerns. The meeting is taking place at the Kinburn Community Centre (3045 Kinburn Side Rd) from 5:00-7:30pm.

I will provide this information again in a future column closer to the date to remind residents of this worthwhile opportunity to address Ms. Crean directly.
