Water Department Questioned About Bill

waterPERTH AMBOY – The owner of the PayRite Liquor Store on Smith Street came before the Council ask for their help about a discrepancy in his water bill. He explained, “On April 21, 2015 our water was turned off because the bill wasn’t paid. One bill was for $4,800 where I was fortunate to be able to borrow money to pay that bill. And then there was another bill for $454. There’s two meters: one for upstairs and one for downstairs. They would not turn the water on until both bills were paid in full. They would not accept a payment plan. Both of these bills were paid in cash. On June 3, when I got another bill, it said I owed $1400. I don’t know how come the bill was that much in a short period of time. They said there was a balance on the last bill. I’m asking the Council for your help.”

Resident Stanley Sierakowski came up to speak and had some advice for this gentleman, “I will go back to the Water Company records because they said, you will have to pay the whole amount in full to get the water turned back on. (Therefore there could not be a balance)

The Council and Business Administrator requested that the gentleman give his name and other information so they could look into it.
