In a City of Delinquents, Philadelphia Mayor Nutter Failed to Pay His Bills On Time
The same man who has repeatedly staged news conferences to publicly shame tax deadbeats - was delinquent on his gas bill and received a three-day shutoff notice from Philadelphia Gas Works.
Mayor Nutter - the same man who has repeatedly staged news conferences to publicly shame tax deadbeats - was delinquent on his gas bill and received a three-day shutoff notice from Philadelphia Gas Works, the Daily News has learned.
On May 3, Nutter received the notice, which shows a past-due balance of $507.76. About two weeks later, court records show, the city placed a lien on his Wynnefield house, which was not satisfied until last Saturday.
"The bill is paid. Nothing happened. There's no story here," Nutter said when asked Monday about the matter. Nutter, who earns $174,400 a year, declined to elaborate.
