MARION, OH — The Marion Public Library is kicking off its financially-themed week with state representation.

Craig Simpson, patron services associate with Marion Public Library, said the event will help start a week of programs headlined by folks from the financial institutions, including the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

A representative from PUCO will be available to discuss energy choice and government aggregation-related questions at the Marion Public Library, 455 E. Church St., from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday.

Area residents are encouraged to bring their utility bills to the library for answers to specific questions. The event is the first in the Marion Library’s “Money Smart Week” series of events scheduled throughout the week.

Marion city residents recently received notices of an April 9 deadline in order to opt-out of the city’s aggregation with FirstEnergy Solutions. Customers who do not return the form included with the notice by April 9 will continue with the city’s contracted rate. Energy choice in Ohio allows consumers of investor-owned utilities to choose their electric and natural gas supplier.

For information about energy choice, including a sortable list of electric and natural gas offers, visit PUCO’s website at

Money Smart Week events continue at 7 p.m. Monday as the library will have Jon Ferguson and Chris Woodard from Fahey Bank to talk about money frauds and scams and how to protect yourself.
