The hearings will be:
- Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022, 4-7 p.m. at the Lake Michigan room of the MPSC’s offices at 7109 W. Saginaw Highway, Lansing. The hearing will be broadcast by videoconference on a Microsoft Teams livestream and by phone by calling 248-509-0316 and entering the conference ID 114 029 601# when prompted. Preregistration is requested at https://www.research.net/r/PublicHearingSept8
