The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department is no longer placing door notices on homes of customers who haven't paid their bills.
Instead, the department is encouraging customers to look for the notices on their bills in the mail, or check them online.
Bryan Peckinpaugh, spokesman for DWSD, said bills have a clearly labeled "account status" box on them, with bold font to let people know if they are behind or in danger of being shut off.
He said the department cut the door tags to save money. But, he said DWSD uses additional means to reach people.
