Get natural gas service for your home in Lake Worth—Protect yourself from the "Cash Cow" that self-serving politicians want access to

[This is a reminder: Protect your family and your biggest investment, your home, and Call Florida Public Utilities at 800-427-7712 today.]

For several years now the City has been weaning itself off the "Cash Cow": the Electric Utility. In past city commissions electric rates were increased to fund City operations and to this day two sitting Lake Worth city commissioners still want at that Cash Cow, in effect reaching into your family's budget for more of your money:
Commissioners Maier and McVoy tried to raise electric rates to fix all the problems at the Casino complex. Their pitch failed this time but they're not done trying.
This latest pitch by McVoy and Maier to raise your electric rates failed but all that can change after any city election. So, what can you do to protect yourself from that political football, the City's Electric Utility. . .the Cash Cow some politicians enjoy access to for their wish list? Get clean, affordable, stable and reliable natural gas. With natural gas your family's budget and finances aren't as subject to the political whims paid for with a spike in your electric utility bill.
