TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- An agency that represents small utility customers is asking the KCC to reject Westar Energy's plan to allow some customers to prepay their bills.

The Citizen's Utility Ratepayer Board filed a motion Monday asking the KCC to dismiss Westar's application for the program.

Westar applied in October to allow about a 1,000 customers to prepay their bills.

CURB argues that Westar hasn't shown how the program would help the public or why customers would be charged a $4.00 fee as part of the prepaid program.
