The brutal cold of last winter is unforgettable and Peoples Gas is taking steps to make sure their customers are able to cope this winter, especially, the elderly, reports CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot.
An elderly West Side woman who has hit with a $44,000 gas bill, has been offered a payment plan from the utility.
She was told People’s Gas needed to replace her meter. That’s where her nightmare began. Her gas was cut off and, on Wednesday, she got a new bill for more than $44,000, accused of stealing gas.
