As the heat wave dies down in the Mid-South, utility companies are turning up the heat on unpaid bills.

This summer, MLGW and other area creditors gave a break to people who hadn’t paid their bills. Cutting power in the middle of a heat wave could be deadly, and they recognized this by allowing outstanding debts to go unenforced for a while.

But fall is around the corner and Memphis is cooling down. So as of this week, MLGW and other utility companies have announced that they will begin enforcing unpaid bills again. Residents all over the area who are behind on payments may find themselves losing access to certain services in the near future.

To set up a repayment plan, you can call MLGW at (901) 820-7878.
