No Gas Cut-Offs through March 31

Good news Richmond! When you get your bills this month, you can know that the Department of Public Utilities will not cut off anyone’s gas this winter. This is a new policy that was started in November of 2005. This information, however, was only made public at a City Council meeting last night, after supporters of a moratorium made the DPU present their actual policy. Thanks to the Defenders for Freedom Justice and Equality, a Richmond-based community group, it is now public knowledge that there will be no gas cut-offs through March 31st.
