Mid American Energy Holds Meeting



Mid American Energy and The Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance held a meeting yesterday to discuss several issues with residents.  One of the topics discussed was a rate increase that was recently proposed.  Rates have remained the same since 1995 and vice president Dean Crist said rates are only stable so long before an increase is needed:

Another meeting is scheduled to be held July 2nd.
