LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The power has been restored to the African American Heritage Center in Louisville after LG&E pulled the plug . . . and you are paying for the bill.

The mayor's office turned to Metro Council to get emergency funding for the large overdue bill.

The center is located at 18thy and Ali and owed $9 thousand to LG&E, which cut the power Monday night.

The center is struggling with other major financial issues and has had trouble staying open since it opened.

The city gives it $125 thousand a year toward its operation. The LG&E bill was an advance on that money and the mayor told us he does not want it to fold.

The city also owns the land where the center stands.
