Winter Moratorium approaches

We've felt our first nip of cold air, so it's time to start thinking ahead!

MLGW's Winter Moratorium program ensures uninterrupted service to senior citizens at least 60 years of age and to disabled customers during the winter months. The program is set up to assist these customers—most of whom are on fixed incomes—during the coldest time of the year, when utility costs and usage are typically higher than usual.

The Winter Moratorium delays any pending cutoff of residential services for qualified customers during the months of December, January and February. MLGW will not disconnect any services due to non-payment during these months. However, participants will not be relieved of their obligation to pay their utility bill.

There are no income restrictions for the Winter Moratorium program; however, applicants cannot have an outstanding balance on their utility bill on November 30 when the program begins. All applicants who meet the program requirements will be approved to participate. Deadline for application is November 15. Applications are available online, at the Aging Commission, at MIFA offices, at any MLGW Community Office, or by calling 544-MLGW.
