Fitzgerald residents upset over utility bills

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Folks in Fitzgerald tried to get something done about it Thursday night.They spoke up at the Fitzgerald Water Light and Bond Commission meeting, complaining about bills they say are ridiculously high. Utility leaders blame the high bills on our extremely cold weather and high gas prices.

"We aren't really getting answers. They're just talking like over our heads so to speak to me because in order to get the answers that mean that you have something in place that is going to help the city of Fitzgerald," said Brenda Scott, Fitzgerald resident.

Utility officials say they will work with customers who are having trouble paying their bills on case by case basis.

 They say customers should contact their customer service department during normal business hours.
