New Electric Supplier Contract Proposed in Lansdale
Lansdale officials at their business meeting on January 16th will consider a five year contract with a new power supplier.

It could also put some upward pressure on what consumers in Lansdale pay for electricity but that isn't certain at this point since the contract cost of power won't be nailed down until four hours before the start of the council meeting.
