GRU Customers Look for Answers and Relief at City Commission Meeting
GAINESVILLE- Customers and citizens were at City Hall Thursday protesting a fuel adjustment charge that they say is taking their money to cover up hidden costs of the biomass plant.
Gainesville Regional Utilities Customer, Debbie Martinez says, “So far it’s approximately $194 in overage charges for every customer. We have people who can’t afford to put food on their tables and to provide medicine for their families, it’s their money, it’s our money and we want our money back."
The fund Rodriguez is describing is meant to act as buffer to fluctuating fuel costs that would normally cause dips or rises in monthly bills.
