Community Review Team to Question BWL Leaders

Community Review Team to Question BWL Leaders

By FOX 47 News . CREATED Mar 10, 2014

The Community Review Team created to examine the Board of Water and Light's response to a December ice storm will question board leaders Monday morning.

The all-volunteer CRT is looking for more answers as to how adequately BWL planned, prepared, responded and recovered to a Christmastime storm that left tens of thousands without power -- some for nearly two weeks.

Questions may largely focus on a second request for information the team submitted Feb. 26, after it didn't get all the answers it was looking for from a preliminary, 18-point memo submitted to the utility on Jan. 30.

The public may attend the meeting, but won't have an opportunity to question or comment. The meeting scheduled from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Foster Community Center in Lansing.

Lorne Fultonberg will be at the meeting and bring you the latest tonight on FOX 47 News.
