According to city spokesman Vincent Creel, city attorney Gerald Blessey argued the city, its businesses and its residents have a huge interest in the outcome of the rate hike proceedings.

Blessey asked the PSC for the right to present testimony and arguments, file motions and cross-examine witnesses during the proceedings.
