The Michigan Public Service Commission will hit the road for its June 6 regular Commission meeting, which will be held in Grand Rapids.

As the Commission works to broaden public engagement in regulatory activities, the MPSC will hold the Commission meeting at 1 p.m. at Grand Valley State University’s L.V. Eberhard Center, 301 Fulton Street W. in downtown Grand Rapids.

The meeting will be in person and livestreamed on Microsoft Teams; all regular Commission meetings are aired online to ensure access for people unable to attend in person.

There will be time for the public to provide input on matters before the Commission or other concerns or comments you may have. Commissioners and MPSC Staff will be on hand with information about financial assistance, energy efficiency and other resources for utility and telecommunications customers.

Holding a regular Commission meeting outside of the MPSC’s Lansing headquarters reflects the MPSC’s ongoing commitment to accessibility and community outreach on energy and telecommunications matters. This will be the second time the Commission has held a regular MPSC meeting outside of Lansing; the MPSC held its first such meeting in Detroit in July 2022.

“We look forward to hearing from energy and telecommunications customers in west Michigan about their concerns,” MPSC Chair Dan Scripps said. “Michiganders’ voices are critical for us to hear as the Commission addresses Michigan’s energy transition, service reliability, and access to broadband and other telecommunications services so important to everyday life.”

The offsite regular Commission meetings are in addition to issue-specific public hearings the MPSC holds to address matters including utility integrated resource planning, power outage concerns, energy assistance, and implementation of Michigan’s 2023 energy laws. In recent years, the Commission’s hearings on these matters and more have been held in Iron Mountain and Marquette in the Upper Peninsula as well as Grand Rapids, Saginaw, Benton Harbor, Jackson and metro Detroit in the Lower Peninsula.

Those unable to attend in person can watch the meeting via livestream on Microsoft Teams and provide comment directly to Commissioners during the public comment period; details about how to participate will be posted closer to the day of the Commission meeting at the event’s webpage.

People with disabilities may request reasonable accommodations to help them attend the meeting by contacting the Commission’s Executive Secretary at 517-284-8090 as far as possible in advance of the meeting.
