Lebanon Utilities asks for a smaller increase

Lebanon — Electric rates in Lebanon may not be increasing as much as originally thought after the Lebanon City Council passed a new rate request by Lebanon Utilities General Manager Mike Martin at Monday’s meeting.

The city council in March initially approved a request by Martin to raise electric rates by an average of 17.3 percent. But once approved by the council, the request also has to be approved by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. The IURC receives testimonies from Lebanon Utilities and from the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, which represents the electric consumers. The IURC reviews both testimonies and makes a decision in a court-like hearing.
