Help for people behind on utility bills

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) - Money problems have made it a difficult winter for some.  Under state law, utilities companies are allowed to shut off all power to homes that are behind on payments on April 1st.

Operation Threshold in Waterloo helps people struggling to pay those bills.  Anyone with a disconnect notice or pay agreement can schedule an appointment for assistance.

People we spoke with at Operation Threshold said it is still too early to tell if the demand for help is up this year.

You can schedule an appointment aytime until November 1st.
