Up Coming Community Events

 

Last month, Consumers Energy issued a press release about the future of their hydro strategy including the dams that are located on the Au Sable River.  Consumers started gather opinions from the public about the 13 dams they own and operate on five Michigan rivers to help guide their decisions about the future of those electric generating facilities.

 

Consumers Energy is taking this process very seriously and involving the community and the public is critical to determining how best to move forward.  After all, many communities and businesses exist today because of these facilities and it is important that they continue to be a part of future hydro strategy.

 

Following is the schedule of public meetings in Iosco County.  Please note that all meetings begin with an open house at 5:30 p.m. and the public meeting will begin at 6:00.
