Reviewing the Record Presentation

On Nov. 7, 2023, Grand Haven voters will decide whether to retain their rights to elect the Board of Light and Power Directors or place the electric utility under the City Council’s control. The ballot proposal was brought forth by a group called the Board of Light and Power Charter Change Coalition. This group is not affiliated with the BLP.

BLP staff provided a presentation during a recent public meeting that effectively dispels misinformation being used to try and sway public opinion.

We encourage all BLP customers affected by this charter change proposal to review this presentation before making a decision on the future of your electric utility. Please like and share this ENLIGHTENING PRESENTATION to help get the word out!
