|Commissioner Lightsey’s comments during last
week’s City Commission meeting.
Commissioner Lightsey commented that the City should wait and conduct further research into the various options available, as well as consider any possible future taxes and offsets before launching into an RFP process for any new energy projects.
She defended the customer base saying that the customers already pay higher rates because of the various carbon reducing programs and that adding any further projects without some sort of offset would be “a very very hard sell.” She would later say that City is “already very clean” and that at some point “someone’s got to speak for the customer base.”
The video showcases her comments in their entirety.
