Cold Weather Rule Ends March 31

Cold WeatherThe Cold Weather Rule in Russell ends on March 31, and citizens who are delinquent on electric utility bills will be subject to disconnection of service.

The rule, in effect November 1 through March 31 each year, provides protection to residential customers who cannot fully pay winter utility bills.

Russell City Clerk Sheldon Hamilton says talk to his office at the City Building if you have any questions or concerns.

"We will resume disconnecting people on their electric bill for non-payment," Hamilton said. "There will be notices hung on people's doors and they've already received notices in the mail. I believe that would start Tuesday for disconnection."

Hamilton can be reached at the City Building at 483-6311.
