The people's money

The people's money

I have been following the debate concerning the Johnson City Power Board’s donation to a performing arts center since it started. I believe that this money belongs to the people who purchase power from this utility.
If there is an excess amount of money to send donations this large, it seems to me that the Power Board is charging too much for power.
I think if the Power Board has excess money, it should be given back to the customers, or the Power Board should lower its rates.
Maybe the Power Board should put this money in a fund for repairs instead of raising rates.
