During its meeting Tuesday afternoon, Camden City Council once again heard from residents who are upset about their high electricity bills. In July, council implemented a 5-cent per kilowatt hour surcharge to help offset the increased cost of natural gas and what the city of Camden has to pay for purchasing electricity for its customers.
