I live outside the city limits and have been impacted greatly by HSUD. We were recently without power for two weeks with very little communication. I work from home. We do not have cell service when the power goes out. It effects the cell towers too. We do not have internet when our area is without power. We lost $2000 in groceries. We had a lot of meat frozen. HSUD cannot service the entire area they are responsible for, and the poor leadership makes matters much worse. We desperately need this bill to pass.

This MUST be done to stop the mayor of a city that I do not get to vote for control my power company (HSUD). The mayor is incompetent and there is no way for those of us not in the city limits (voting rights) to remove her from her position over HSUD.

I live in Marshall County MS. Our utility provider is HSUD. The utility department is severely understaffed and incapable of managing the territory that they are responsible for providing utilities for. The right of ways have not been cleared in over ten years. Rotten poles have not been replaced, despite reports to the utility department. When power goes out, the majority of customers are without power for days due to the lack of staffing. We have lost an incubator due to the power outage in spring of 2022 when our power was out for 7 days. I worry about power surges destroying other appliances.

HSUD has not had good management for some time, I am very glad we will have a new utility company!!

The citizens that are not within the Holly Springs city limits in Marshall county only have one option for utilities. HSUD is run by the city- the mayor and aldermen, which those outside city limits have no control over as we are not able to vote in city elections.
