Edmond Electric spent $300,000 to make repairs to the electrical system after a tornado touched down May 19 in Edmond. City officials are trying to get FEMA to reimburse Edmond Electric for its expenses.

The report recommended a 2.5 percent increase for the following three years. Any future rate hike requests will be taken to the city council for a final decision.

The change also addresses outdoor security lighting rates. The lights will now only be available to residential customers and homeowners associations. In the past, security lights were available to anyone on request.

The cost is now $22.84 a month for a decorative post, a jump from $18.84.
