Mayors Explore Options To Lower Utility Costs

A group of mayors from across the east is trying to figure out if anything can be done about the high utility rates customers pay.

Those mayors are from cities that formed Electricities years ago, and invested in a nuclear power plant where costs skyrocketed.

About a dozen mayors, including Kinston Mayor B.J. Murphy, are sparking debate on whether electric rates can be lowered, despite a contract with the member organization Electricities that runs through the year 2026.

The group of mayors is going to meet with the Attorney General's office and Electricities.

The group is also looking into getting a member elected to the Electricities board of directors to push for changes.
