Make Plans to Attend IUB LIHEAP Meeting/Webinar

Posted By IAMU, Wednesday, October 16, 2019

The Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) has scheduled eight Customer Service Fall Meetings throughout Iowa to address energy-related customer issues of importance to utility customer service personnel and community action agency caseworkers.  The sessions are open to utility and community action agency personnel and representatives of other community-based help organizations that assist low-income clients with winter heating bills.

Discussion will include LIHEAP, the Iowa winter home heating energy disconnection moratorium, a review of IUB’s role and jurisdiction, including rules regarding disconnection of utility service and how to file comments or complaints with the IUB.  

New this year: Three sessions will include a webinar option that will allow for active participation from attendees unable to travel to one of the community meetings.

Space is limited at each session. Sign up now to attend using the link to the IUB’s online registration form. If interested in participating remotely via webinar please complete an additional registration submission

Make Sure to Keep Your Emergency Notification Contacts Up to Date

Posted By IAMU, Wednesday, September 25, 2019

It was brought to IAMU’s attention by an IAMU member updating his utilities’ IUB Emergency Notification Contacts that other utilities may need to update their contacts with the IUB and the railroads. If you haven’t checked on your contact information recently and have had any staff changes, you may want to review your contact information with these groups.
