FLYER Turner hosts event to help residents save money on utility bills

DECATUR – To help save homeowners money on their utility bills, State Senator Doris Turner is hosting a free clinic with the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27. 

“This event will provide residents with the opportunity to learn how to reduce their utility bills,” said Turner (D-Springfield).  “With so many families struggling, I’m glad to be able to connect them with available resources to help them save their hard-earned money.”

The clinic will take place at Turner’s Decatur Office located at 1210 S. Jasper St. in Decatur. Attendees are encouraged to bring copies of their gas, electric and phone bills for free, one-on-one consultations with CUB’s experts.

To help accommodate interested participants, Turner’s office is asking those interested to register for the event by calling her Decatur office at 217-706-5311 for a one-on-one consultation with a CUB professional to discuss lowering their electric, water, gas, phone, cable and internet bills.  Registration is recommended but walk-ins are welcome.

During the event, the representative will evaluate participants’ bills to determine if they are signed up with an alternative supplier or paying for unnecessary products or services. CUB will also let participants know if they are eligible for money-saving programs, like financial assistance, and share information about energy efficiency programs.

Turner encourages residents to take advantage of this free clinic to keep their utility usage and costs in check.
