LANSING, MI. (WLNS) – Two years ago, the historic ice storm coated the Capitol area with thick ice, knocking down trees, damaging houses and killing power to tens of thousands.
Many Lansing Board of Water and Light customers criticized the utility for how they handled their outages and restoration efforts.
Some people went nearly two weeks without heat and electricity.
Since then, many changes have been made at BWL and utility officials say if another storm like that were to happen, things would be a lot better for customers.
Thursday evening those customers are welcome to a community meeting where BWL officials will deliver their final report on improvements made following the 2013 storm.
General Manager Dick Peffley says he’s confident that moving forward customers will get their power restored faster if it goes off in several storms.
The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Reo Town Depot.
