Council Asks for Expanded Investigation into BGE Service

The council is asking the state to look into residents' complaints about reliability.

The scope of a state investigation into BGE may soon get bigger.

The Howard County Council Monday night passed a resolution to submit a petition adding more than a dozen neighborhoods to an investigation currently underway into the utility's service in Ellicott City.

Currently, the Public Service Commission (PSC) is investigating BGE's reliability in Font Hill, Dunloggin, Valley Mede and several nearby neighborhoods after Cathy Eshmont in February filed a petition with signatures from more than the required 100 residents.

An investigation can also be initiated by local legislative authorities. Courtney Watson (D-Elliciott City) sponsored the resolution asking the PSC to investigate reliability in neighborhoods beyond those mentioned in Eshmont's petition.

Watson said last month that she hoped the resolution would bring to residents' attention the efforts to help them work with BGE on reliability issues. The resolution will ask that these additional areas be added to the current investigation:

  • Braeburn
  • Burleigh Manor
  • Columbia
  • Columbia Hills
  • Dunloggin
  • Hammond Village
  • Historic Ellicott City
  • Hollifield
  • Laurel
  • Pleasant Chase
  • Ridgeley’s Run
  • The Oaks
  • Turf Valley Legends
  • Turf Valley Vistas
  • Worthington
