CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

A community center in southern Illinois needs help paying its bills.

The Eurma Hayes Center in Carbondale got a one-month reprieve from Ameren after local lawmakers stepped in.

But according to the center's interim supervisor,  the place is $4,300 behind on its power bill.

She says that's before you factor in the bill that's expected to come out in early November.

Supervisor Edith Koine says the center's only revenue comes from renters. That adds up to little more than the power bill.

And with other utilities and insurance to pay, Koine says the center needs help.

She's hoping to rally community support in the form of donations to keep the nearly 40-year-old center's lights on and doors open.
