Detroit residents get more time to deal with unpaid water bills

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 02:23
By Mark Guarino CHICAGO (Reuters) - Detroit residents with unpaid water bills now have 21 more days to pay or set up a payment plan as the city reassesses its policy on how to deal with a $90 million backlog in unpaid bills, the mayor said on Monday. Experts from the United Nations called the shutoffs "an affront to human rights," saying the city's high poverty and unemployment rates make paying mounting water bills impossible for a significant portion of the population. About 90,000 residential and business water accounts are still delinquent in the Detroit area, most of them in the city of 689,000 people, others in surrounding areas. The controversy made its way into the city's ongoing bankruptcy proceedings last month when Judge Steven Rhodes, who is presiding over the city's plan to exit Chapter 9 bankruptcy, criticized the city, saying the mass shutoffs were bringing "bad publicity for the city it doesn't need." In response, emergency manager Kevyn Orr handed control of Detroit's Water and Sewerage Department to Mayor Mike Duggan who promised a more streamlined, and fair, response to those with delinquent bills.
