Lufkin Votes Energy Rates Invalid

The city commission is trying to do what it can to stop CenterPoint Energy from continuing with their raised rates.

They have voted that CenterPoint Energy's rates are invalid. They say the company should no longer collect and charge the high rates that they are already charging.

According to City Manager Paul Parker, CenterPoint has not given them enough information to validate the rate increase.

Parker believes the issue will be taken to the courts.
