NEW ORLEANS - Today, District “C” Councilmember Kristin Palmer filed a resolution (R-21-337) requesting that the City Council, the regulatory body of Entergy New Orleans (ENO), stop rate increases for the recovery costs of Hurricane Ida.
“We need to be very clear here—Entergy failed the people of New Orleans. It’s inexcusable that our entire City was left in the dark for weeks following Hurricane Ida. People died. Most of them were part of our City’s most vulnerable populations who suffered in the sweltering heat. Asking for the people of New Orleans to pay more for bad service caused by obvious negligence is not going to cut it,” said Councilmember Palmer.
