Goodness it has been cold and for many of us the snow and sleet will linger for a few more days. Schools throughout the area closed and the high never got above freezing all day. Thankfully, it IS Texas, and these conditions won’t last too long. However, the burden on our utilities to keep homes warm and the lights on will impact the bills that will be rolling in later. Community Lifeline Center is ready to help.
Both CoServ and TXU Energy, providers of electric service for many Collin County residents, will have representatives at the Community Lifeline Center on the following dates from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm to help residents with payments:
CoServ Wednesday, March 11, 2015
