RSVP’s being accepted for Rep. Welter’s utility bill savings clinic October 3 in Morris

Local residents interested in learning how to save money on their gas, electric and phone bills are invited to attend a free clinic sponsored by State Rep. David Welter, R-Morris and the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) from 10:00 a.m. to Noon on Thursday, October 3 at Morris City Hall, located at 700 N. Division Street.  

Attendees are encouraged to bring their gas, electric and phone bills for a free one-on-one consultation with a consumer expert from CUB, who will give tips on how to reduce costs. At clinics across Illinois, CUB has shown consumers how to trim their bills by an average of more than $200 per year.

At the Utility Bill Clinic, guests will learn:

  • How to spot unnecessary charges on electric, natural gas, and phone bills.
  • Which energy efficiency programs and rebates can help.
  • What to watch for when shopping around in the energy market.
  • Your options when it comes to phone, TV, and Internet.

“Helping local residents save money on their utility bills is one of the many ways my office is pleased to serve our community,” Rep. Welter said. “I encourage everyone to attend and learn how to apply simple tips to get more for less on every dollar you spend on gas, electric and phone service.”
