ITASCA, Ill. – To help residents reduce the cost of their utility bills, state Rep. Diane Pappas, D-Itasca, is hosting a free Utility Bill Clinic with the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) on Wednesday, June 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Bloomingdale Horizon Senior Living Community, located at 160 W. Lake St. in Bloomingdale.
“Many residents struggle to pay their utility bills, and often don’t understand the details of their bills,” said Pappas. “Middle-class families already pay extremely high property taxes, and high utility bills only add to the financial strain. I’m committed to helping families reduce their financial burden, and helping residents understand the intricacies of their utility bills is one important step towards that goal.”
At Pappas’ event, utility bill experts from CUB will review residents’ utility bills and explain possible charges or offer suggestions that could save residents money on their bills. Residents should bring copies of their phone, water, and utility bills. Residents are strongly recommended to RSVP, as space is limited.
“Residents who attend this utility bill clinic will not only better understand the different charges on their utility bill, but will also learn ways to save money on their next bill,” said Pappas. “I encourage everyone in my district to tell their friends and neighbors about this free event, and to reach out to my office with any questions or their RSVP.”
For more information or to RSVP, please contact Rep. Pappas’ constituent service office at 224-520-8838 or RepDPappas@gmail.com.
