EWING - Ewing Township has to deal with dozens of unpaid utility bills. So far, they've racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt.

Apparently no one was paying the utility bills in Ewing for months. Mayor Bert Steinmann said the town could have paid a serious price and that some of the buildings wound up with shut off notices.

Steinmann says dozens of bills were waiting on the desk of his finance director when his administration took over last month. He says the former mayor was very nice, but he thinks his administrative staff let him down.
