Utility Bill Relief For Marylanders

Residents in Maryland having trouble paying their utility bills will get a little more time before their lights might be cut-off.   Today, Governor Larry Hogan barred utility providers from shutting off service or charging late fees until at least Sept. 1.  The governor’s order applies to companies providing electric, water, gas, phone and internet service. Hogan’s mandate was first imposed in March in order to offer economic relief following layoffs and business closures due to COVID-19.
