The Safe and Affordable Utility Access for Everyone committee will meet at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30, at the South Branch Library in Conference Room A, 3104 Strong Ave., Kansas City, Kansas.
The meeting is open to the public.
Louise Lynch, a KCK resident, said there are many people who need food in the community and also are struggling to keep their lights and water on now.
Ty Gorman, a KCK activist who has worked with the Sierra Club, stated on a community invitation that residents should attend and share their experiences.
The group is calling for no Board of Public Utilities shutoffs putting customers at high health risk; separation of electric and water charges from unrelated taxes, fees and fixed costs from the BPU and Unified Government on BPU bills; and no disconnection of water for nonpayment, among other issues.
