I&M Power to host meeting with Downtown South Bend about May power outage


I&M Power is in the process of setting up a meeting South Bend business owners about the May power outage that knocked out service throughout the downtown area for the weekend of May 16-18.

Brian Bergsma, I&M's Director of Communications, says the company plans to meet next week with Downtown South Bend (DTSB) to brief them on the progress of the investigation into the cause of the outage that crippled business during a vital weekend that brought visitors to the city for Notre Dame and St. Mary's commencement ceremonies.

DTSB estimated lost revenue from the power outage at $3 million at a minimum. Bergsma says I&M has been in an ongoing conversation with DTSB about claims that might be filed as a result of the outage.

Bergsma said details are still being worked out as far as the time and location, but the preliminary date for the meeting is July 16. An update to the public about the investigation into the cause is expected to follow shortly afterward.
