Mayor Nutter who was delinquent on his gas bill and satisfied a lien last week told reporters today he made a mistake and simply "just missed it."

"I made a mistake," Nutter said at a City Hall news conference this afternoon. "I was not putting it off. I made a human error."

Nutter said he didn't know the bill was outstanding. He said he did not recall notices warning that a lien could be placed on his property for an outstanding bill and noted that he and his family are fairly busy. He said he thought he paid the bill.

Nutter lauded Philadelphia Gas Works' collection system noting it's "very efficient."
