A gas supplier is appointed to a council with 17 years of unpaid bills
A gas supplier is appointed to a council with 17 years of unpaid bills: After discovering that it had not paid its gas bills for 17 years, a local council in Yorkshire appointed a gas supplier.
Beverley Town Council launched an investigation earlier this month into why it does not have a gas supplier “despite using and receiving gas since 2004.”
The local authority had previously contacted Northern Gas Networks, which confirmed that there had never been a registered gas supply.
“I am pleased to say that Beverley Town Council now has a gas supplier and that British Gas has undertaken to supply gas, and an account has been set up.” Said Councillor Denis Healy, Chair of Personnel Committee,
“We are still unclear whether any back payments will need to be made and we are waiting confirmation and clarification on this from Northern Gas Networks.”
