Heating bills lighten wallets; help is available
As winter temperatures have plunged, heating bills have risen. And as the bills pile up, many people may not know where to turn.
The first place they should go is their utility company, said River Falls Utility Director Kevin Westhuis. He says people who get electric heat from RFMU should call if they’re struggling to pay.
“We’re a local phone call away,” Westhuis said. “We work with almost everybody who calls in. We work out some kind of payment plan… we’re here to help.”
