§ 450.7. Public Meeting or Election on Project Loan Debt.
(a) A public meeting or, if required by the applicants governing law, an election on the proposed project loan debt must be held by the applicant before entering into the funding contract, unless the contract is for a feasibility study loan or grant. A meeting or the required election shall be conducted after the Department has notified the applicant of its ranking within the fundable range of the priority list, but before the loan contract is executed. The purpose of the public meeting shall be to inform the ratepayers of the project and to provide a forum for public comment on the means of financing the project. This public meeting may be combined with another public meeting which the applicant must hold on the project.
(b) Before conducting a public meeting on the project debt, the applicant shall:
(1) Establish a date for the meeting agreeable to the Department.
(2) Obtain a meeting place of sufficient size and at a convenient location to accommodate the anticipated audience.
(3) Notify the Department in writing at least thirty calendar days before the meeting, and provide reasonable notification to the public and the local news media at least fifteen calendar days before the meeting. The notice shall state: the date, time, location and purpose of the meeting and the location where information describing the project may be reviewed.
(4) At least fifteen days before the meeting, make available information describing the project in a form and location that will enable the public to review it and to make comments.
Within thirty days following the meeting or election, the applicant shall submit a written report to the Department describing the meeting including an assessment of support and opposition to the project.
