Kansas Cold Weather Ends Monday

Updated:
     Kansas State officials are reminding residents who fall behind on electric and natural gas bills that they'll lose some protection against shutoffs next week. 
     The Kansas Corporation Commission notes Monday April 1st, 2014  is the last effective day of the annual cold weather rule. 

     The rule, in effect from November through March, bars state-regulated utilities from cutting off electric or gas service whenever temperatures are expected to drop below 35 degrees within the next 24 hours.

    Pittsburg's Salvation Army Representatives say, some residents needing assistance after the cold weather rule ends,  have utilities bills in the 4 digit range. 

Here are some assistance programs in the Pittsburg, KS area.
