Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) - Upper Michigan’s legislative delegation is continuing to reach out to U.P. residents to help them through the current propane shortage.
State Representatives John Kivela of Marquette, Scott Dianda of Calumet, Ed McBroom of Vulcan and State Senator Tom Casperson of Escanaba are urging residents to take steps to stay warm this winter.
The delegation says the Michigan Public Service Commission says propane inventories in the U.P. are 43 percent below last year’s level.
The legislators suggest calling 2-1-1 for help with heating costs, checking in on neighbors and donating to local food banks and charities.
They are also asking residents to conserve as much fuel as possible, as they are unsure of how long the propane shortage will last.
They add if residents have any concerns with this situation, they are asked to contact their local legislative office.
