As we first reported here, the Ohio Public Utilities Commission is currently considering a proposal by Duke Energy to allow Cincinnati City Council to add a surcharge for the Cincinnati Streetcar. Public Comments are being accepted.
The PUCO staff report is expected next week. Already hundreds of concerned citizens have weighed in to oppose this hidden tax. Make sure your voice is heard as well. You can use this sample email link as a template. Or use PUCO's online comment form to let them know you don't want to pay for a Streetcar on your Electric Bill. Include reference Case 12-1682-EL-AIR in your comment.

COAST will continue to follow this case and keep you updated.
