BAYCITY, Mich. (AP) - A 93-year-old man froze to death inside his Bay Cityhome just days after the city limited his flow of electricity for notpaying his bills.
The Bay City Times reports Monday theindoor temperature was below freezing when neighbors discovered MarvinE. Schur's body on Jan. 17.
A city utility worker installed a"limiter" device outside his home on Jan. 13. The device limits powerreaching the home and blows out if more than allowed is drained. Poweris not restored until the device is reset.
City ManagerRobert Belleman says he doesn't know if anyone explained to Schur howto use the device. Belleman says the utility's policies will bereviewed, but he doesn't believe the city did anything wrong.
