Cretan kindergarten’s power supply restored

The Public Power Corporation said on Friday that it had reconnected the electricity supply of a state-run kindergarten on Crete that had failed to pay its bill.

Iraklio Municipality said that the school was part of a new complex completed in September 2012 and a bureaucratic error had led to the electricity bill not being paid.

The municipality complained that the kindergarten, which is attended by about 80 pupils, was not given any warning that its power would be cut.
