Landlords brace for utility bills

The Public Service Commission rolled back its order allowing utilities to be shut off just days before it was set to take effect. Sturgeon Bay Utilities had already sent out shutoff notices to 450 customers, accounts that are now safe through at least August 31st. General Manager Jim Stawicki says the surge in delinquencies could hit landlords hard. They are eventually responsible for the missed payments of their tenants. 

 


Door County is a relative bright spot as there has not been a surge in evictions in the past two months following a moratorium that went into effect at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Unemployment reached as high as 20% in April, and rent payments seem to have been prioritized over other bills.
