ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

To the editor:

The May 31 issue of the Gazette has an article about Alliant Energy awarding more than $75,000 in grants to some 21 organizations. Very generous, very nice.

In the same paper, another article titled “Hearing Thursday on Alliant rate increase,” wanting to phase in a $10 to $12 per month rate increase. The web site says this would bring in $176 million per year.

After having been hit with several rate increases the last few years, we are not greatly impressed with Alliant’s grand benevolence with our money. Southern Iowa has been hit with larger increases than northern Iowa. I’m also not wild about Alliant patting themselves on the back with our money, when we are struggling to pay our bills, only to be asked to pay another rate increase.

The Iowa Utilities Board should disallow this increase.
