I heard it was at the first of this month. Does it even matter anymore...the electric company is putting people into poverty. I know they base my bill off the year before and I havent used my heat as much as last years. Almost $400.

Well they charged us $25 just to come out to our house (less than 5 min from elec dept) and turn the main power off for 10 min, long enuf for my hubby to change out our main breaker in our box bc it was failing and just about caught our house on fire the night before, and then turn it back on. No big deal, simple for them to do cause all they had to do was remove the outside meter plus it was a safety hazard and we could have lost our house to a fire. Not to mention when we called to have someone come out they told us there was no charge especially since it was a safety issue, but they slap this bogus charge on our bill 2 MONTHS LATER may I add. I'm so disgusted with them, but what can I do, nothing cause if I don't pay the bill they will really shut it off and charge a lot more for reconnection!!!!

It's because the city of Elizbethton is in the hole! Check the water bills they have nearly tripled in the past 6 months? It's all about money BUT they get their raises each AND every year thou!

We have a pretty new building that is not even put to FULL use and lot of people just sitting around holding grudges and not doing a whole lot of nothing! We need to get people with COMMON SENSE in ALL of the offices around here that's NOT AFRAID OF STANDING UP AND DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR EVERYONE~NOT JUST PEOPLE THAT WE WON'T TO PLEASE OR HAVE A DEAL WITH!!! I know it's you do me a favor and I'll do you one~but when you are hurting people or NOT doing your job it might be time to step out of the office...I wouldn't have the job if I couldn't do it to my best potential!

Exactly, if I can't do a job well I feel like I'm letting someone down and I'm a failure, and I don't take failing well at all so I do everything in my power to not fail! These ppl have no morals, and don't care that their actions r causing others to suffer bc they r the most important person and the world shld revolve around them and them only so as long as they get a check, who gives a damn what's happening!!!! I'm so freakin sick of it!!!!!!!!! Me and my hubby work our butts off to provide for our family, but yet we don't make it from month to month and sometimes have to worry where the next meal is gonna come from to feed our 6 year old!! But we don't matter, only ppl who get assistance and live off the government, but yet either don't truly need it or use it as a permanent crutch instead of a stepping stone so they can sit at home be lazy, do drugs, and pop out kids that they don't want nor take care of, but each child gets them more $ so they keep having them!! REALLY?!?!?!?! When will ppl who work hard and live honestly catch a break..........not anytime in the near or distant future so I might as well shut up and quit whining!!
