Today PUCO released the schedule for the Duke Streetcar Tax proposal. This sets forth the dates and times for various hearings and deadlines for the parties and intervenors. You can read the document below.
PUCO has not yet released the schedule for the public comment hearings. Those dates will be released in a separate document.
Our reading of the staff report suggests that the public comments already submitted are finding a sympathetic ear. The Streetcar is a project which should be paid for by the City - not by Duke customer's on their electric bills!
If you have not yet submitted a public comment, now is the time. Submit your comment to PUCO today. You can 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.
