The Ontario Energy Board will hold a public meeting in Walkerton tomorrow to hear from consumers about an application from Westario Power to raise distribution rates.

The energy regulator encourages customers to attend the meeting Wednesday from 7--9 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion (505 Scott Street) in Walkerton.

The O-E-B says the meeting will provide the opportunity to learn more about Westario Power's costs and rate application, and the chance to provide feedback.
