YOUR TURN: How about a utility discount?

YOUR TURN: How about a utility discount? YOUR TURN: How about a utility discount?

This week's "Your Turn" segment is focused on a MIFA program that encourages people to donate money that will help families in need pay their utility bills. Dan Brown writes to suggest that the donations would go farther if MLGW would also help.

In his words:

Your Action News story at 5:00 p.m. today about people giving money to help poor people pay their utility bills was excellent. My question the news people should ask is, "Why does MLGW not offer a discount program for those people receiving the needed help for the utilities once they have qualified for the special community donations?" The money in the fund is probably paid directly to MLGW for the people needing help. MLGW could discount the bills 25% or more spreading the money to more people in need.

That's Dan Brown's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
