The city of Detroit needs more money in its piggy bank.
So, the city's Public Lighting Department is going after churches, schools and other organizations to collect on unpaid electricity bills, the Detroit Free Press reports.
A batch of lawsuits seek to collect bills that amount collectively to $834,000, Matt Helms writes.
Well-known churches in the group include the Considine/Little Rock Family Life Center, part of the Rev. Jim Holley's Historic Little Rock Missionary Baptist Church on Woodward. It owes $74,000 for electricity since January 2013.
