Central Hudson representatives will hold a community meeting to discuss customers’ bills later this month, the Town of Newburgh announced this morning.
The embattled utility giant has been under major scrutiny from the public and elected officials for nearly one and a half years (see the series of stories here). Thousands of customers have complained about multiple shady billing practices. CEO Charles Freni was recently fired from his top spot as Central Hudson continues to face intense pressure.
Members of Central Hudson’s Community Outreach group will participate in a meeting at the Newburgh Town Hall on Union Avenue to meet with customers, discuss the programs available to them, and to answer questions.
Some of the topics to be discussed will include an explanation of the line items on their energy bills and their Payment Assistance Programs. They will also address account-specific billing questions as time allows.
The meeting will be held at the Newburgh Town Hall on Thursday, March 30, 2023, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.
