Utility bills skyrocket

 By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A lot of people in Doerun tell us their electric bills are sky high. They say something needs to be done.

Gary Copeland and dozens of his neighbors say their utility bills this month are double or even triple the normal amount.

The current bill for Copeland's four bedroom home is more than $700. He complained to the city because he says many people can't afford costs through the roof.

"People have to live and times are tough now," Copeland said. "With these outrageous light bills, something has got to be done."

We tried to get in touch with Mayor Wade Ethridge of Doerun about the issue, but our calls were not returned.
