CAMDEN — A public forum on ‘smart’ electric meters will be held from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23.

The forum, “Smart meters: A dumb idea,” will take place at the First Congregational Church, at the corner of Elm and Free streets. Bath City Councilor David Sinclair, one of the featured speakers, will discuss the “opt-in” ordinance passed by the City Council on June 1 in light of the Central Maine Power Co. “smart” meter program.

Elisa Boxer-Cook of Scarborough, founder of the Maine Smart meter Safety Coalition, will also speak.

Those who attend will hear about dangers some claim are posed by the wireless meters, such as health, privacy, safety and livelihood. They will also learn about how to opt out of the program and retain their analog meters.

This presentation is sponsored by the Camden Smart Meter Safety Coalition and is a public service to residents of Knox, Lincoln, Hancock and Waldo counties.
