(City Manager Lynn) Calton said that if O’Sullivan does not pay its bill today, he would inform Mayor Keith Divine on Friday morning, and that he (Divine) most likely would call a special meeting of the City Council to discuss the possibility of shutting off the plant’s power.

Hopefully, we won’t have to deal with that."
