Last month, “Philadelphia Gas Works had a court place a lien” on Philly Mayor Michael Nutter’s home “because he hadn’t paid his gas bill,” reports CBS-Philadelphia:

A filing in Common Pleas court reveals that a lien was initiated by PGW against Michael Nutter on his home for owing around $500 for past gas bills.

A court filing on May 18th indicates the bill was paid and the matter was settled.

The mayor’s spokesman, Mark McDonald, said Nutter’s PGW account is now “current” and that his failure to pay previously was “a private matter” and refused to discuss how it came about that Nutter owed so much.

When asked if Nutter owing PGW sent a bad message to others who owe, McDonald said, “I don’t think it sends a message of one sort or another. The mayor tries to stay current on his bills like everyone else.”

No word yet if Nutter, whose city has been reported to be teetering on bankruptcy, accused PGW of being racist for demanding payment for its services.
