PSJ commissioners clash over utility rate waiver policy

McKenzie also echoed concerns about “setting a precedent.”

“If you do an adjustment for one person what do you do about other people?” Anderson said, voicing the opinion of staff. “We just want to treat everyone fair.”

Gibson said input from commissioners on such a draft policy was welcome and needed, noting they had the policy in hand by the end of last week.’

An agitated Thursbay withdrew his motion after trying to amend it to say a bill eight times normal for the address should be the threshold for adjusting utility bills.

 “I am tired of fighting,” Thursbay said. “I don’t get paid enough to fight like this. I am fighting for everyone in this city.”

Thursbay said he would have to go tell the customer seeking the bill adjustment that he failed in getting him help.
