Detroit (WXYZ) - It is a nationally registered historic landmark built in the 1920s. It is a symbol of art, culture, and grandeur. It is not the type of building where you expect to see a shut off notice.
That is exactly what was posted on the front door of the Masonic Temple in Detroit on Friday.
Managers working at the Temple have so far not agreed to an interview, but told 7 Action News they may talk about the situation later Friday after more talks with DTE.
DTE Energy tells Action News electric and gas accounts are past due.
DTE has offered to keep the power on, if a partial payment is made, but no agreement has worked out.
DTE says quote “We recognize the iconic status that the Masonic temple holds in the community and we regret that a shut off may be necessary but in fairness to our customers we cannot continue to provide service without payment."
The notice comes as shows continue to be scheduled.
Workers at the Temple on Friday said as of right now all shows should happen as planned.
