Mayor Michael Nutter is a busy man. So busy is he that Nutter may have forgotten to pay his gas bill.

Philadelphia Gas Works filed a claim against the mayor May 18 for failure to pay $507.76 owed to the city agency for gas service at the mayor's house on North 50th Street in the Wynnefield section of West Philadelphia.

The amount was eventually paid this month, according to a court document filed with the civil division of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, which noted a "Satisfaction filed" on June 15.

Nutter's spokesman Mark McDonald refused to say how Nutter came to owe more than $500 to Gas Works.

"He is current with his bills," McDonald said. "I'm not discussing his bills."
