“As we head into the middle of winter and utility bills begin to rise, it’s important that residents can affordably keep their homes heated,” said Yednock. “Utility Bill Clinics can help consumers make their utility bills more cost-efficient and allow for a thorough review of their bill to ensure that there are no unnecessary fees or added charges which can help reduce their monthly cost.”
At Yednock’s workshop, residents were able to bring copies of their latest phone, gas, and electric bills, and received consultations from CUB to identify hidden charges and unnecessary fees that could be driving their bills up. Yednock frequently hosts seminars and workshops to help residents in his community, including other Utility Bill Clinics and Property Tax Seminars, which aim to help residents learn if they are overpaying their property taxes and how to appeal them.
“I want to thank the Citizens Utility Board, Habitat for Humanity, and the Trinity Lutheran Church of Ottawa for partnering with me to bring a great service to residents in the 76th District,” added Yednock. “I look forward to holding future events and seminars that are helpful to hard-working families in my district and help them save more of their money.”
