In January 2009, the city’s electrical utility (Barrie Hydro) merged with PowerStream Inc.
Jeff Lehman, PowerStream Board member and Mayor of the City of Barrie, along with Brian Bentz, PowerStream President and CEO, present cheque for $250,000, in support of Georgian College’s solar power-assisted electric vehicle charging station project, to MaryLynn West-Moynes, Georgian College President and CEO and Gwen Strachan, Georgian College Board Chair.
Done deal: Collingwood Mayor Sandra Cooper and Barrie Mayor Jeff Lehman shake hands to formally announce the creation of Collus Powerstream.
Many Barrie residents have found that their monthly bills have doubled since that time.
- Will Barrie sell off their water utilities too?
And does this have anything to do with the Midhurst Secondary Plan’s potential to start a trans-watershed, county-wide water supply and wastewater treatment network of pipes?
