(WIS) - A fired-up crowd at a special meeting today regarding board members of Tri-County Electric Co-Op.
Attorneys with Chappell, Smith, and Arden posted this video as they were at the meeting to receive an update in a class action lawsuit.
In May, a Richland County man, Roy C. Smith, filed a class action lawsuit against Tri-County Electric Co-Op seeking to represent all of the customers who paid bills to the co-op from May 22, 2015, to the present date and excludes any board members, trustees, or employees.
Allegations of excessive compensation for Tri-County board members have prompted customers to circulate a petition for their removal from office.
According to tax filings, six of the nine board members have received in excess of $100,000 per year in compensation since 2004.
