Utility bills higher for October

By Tim Collins

Hardin County residents have reported higher electric bills for the month of October.

Entergy spokeswoman Kacee Kirschvink said Tropical Storm Harvey has affected the accessibility of Entergy’s meters, necessitating estimated bills for the month of September, either due to debris, high waters leading to damaged equipment, or locked or impeded gates, which prevented Entergy employees from reading meters.

Glenn Wendling, of Lumberton, said he lives off FM 421 and U.S. 69, in a place that received little water. He said Entergy estimated his September bill at $27.81, while his October bill was around $148. He said his August bill was only $14 less, at $134.41.
