Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato, along with other representatives of the Legislative Commission on the Future of the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) will be holding a public hearing on Thursday, December 15 at the Rockaway YMCA, starting at 10 a.m. Amato, who was appointed to the commission, is offering the opportunity for the public to speak directly to LIPA and PSEG. Amato said, “Too often our community is overlooked and forgotten but I have secured us a seat at the table and hope all of you will pull up a chair. This is our chance to stand up and make our voices heard and give our input on LIPA and PSEG,”
The public is encouraged to attend and speak about their experiences with LIPA and PSEG. “The Commission wants to hear from everyone. By hearing from residents, community civic groups and members, small business owners and everyone who is a customer of LIPA and PSEG, we can incorporate their ideas towards making the needed changes to get us the electrical provider we deserve,” Amato said.
