On-Demand - Winter is Coming: Navigating Utility Shutoffs in Cold Weather Months

20.00

As the long Minnesota winter approaches, this training will prepare you to assist clients facing a utility shutoff during cold weather months. Gary Van Winkle, who has been advocating for clients facing utility shutoffs since 1987, provides attendees with a primer on the complex laws that regulate utility companies.  In addition to covering this legal framework, Mr. Van Winkle will draw on his years of experience to provide practical advice to attendees about how to most effectively work with utility companies to help clients avoid a shutoff.  Specific issues to be covered include the different types of utility companies (for example, municipal versus coop companies), when various statutes and regulations apply, constitutional protections available, landlord-tenant issues, the Cold Weather Rule, and eligibility for public benefits.
