Camden City Council will consider a resolution to suspend its recent 10 percent electric utility rate increase during its regular meeting today at 4 p.m. The proposed resolution comes after council discussed alternatives during a work session Thursday afternoon. Council held the work session due to an outcry from residents and other city electric customers during its July 12 meeting that the higher rate and a surcharge were ill timed.
