Public Hearings To Be Held In New Canaan, Westport, Fairfield & Greenwich

Senator Toni Boucher (R-26) is urging constituents to attend one of the public hearings being held to give Fairfield County residents the opportunity to comment on the response of the state’s two largest electric utility companies during and after the March 13th – March 14th storm.

The investigation will focus on complaints about the actions of Connecticut Light & Power Co. (CL&P) and United Illuminating Co. (UI) regarding their response to the storm.

Public hearings will be held at:

    Wednesday, April 7, 2010
    6: 30 p.m.

  • Westport Town Hall

    110 Myrtle Avenue
