Keep Midland Hydro (MPUC) Local!
Midland Council has decided to put our Midland Public Utility Corporation (MPUC), our locally-owned and operated hydro distributor, on the market. The Town of Midland has decided that now is the time to explore a potential sale (in full or in part) of its lucrative power distribution business.
MPUC pays Midland annual dividends in excess of $400,000 to the town as the only shareholder.
Locally Owned - Locally Operated - We Keep 100% Of The Profits
This is Midland's asset. It is a well-run, profitable, efficient organization that has served us with excellence with no reason to believe that will change if kept intact.
This is just another town asset that faces liquidation and extinction under this slash/cut Council.
If you want to keep Midland PUC local and have Council take it off the market, sign this petition and we will present it to Council on your behalf.

Keep Midland Hydro (PUC) Local - Take It Off The Market!
As a taxpayer, resident and shareholder of our MPUC, I respectfully request that you reconsider the selling off, in whole or in part, of our Public Utilities Corporation. Even though the Province is encouraging smaller distributors to combine or merge, you have not made a case to dispose of this town asset.
Take it off the market and find another way. I want our PUC to stay locally owned and operated. I am calling for a referendum vote on this matter.
