Stormwater bullying to stop

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2011 at 2:50 PM

For city and county officials, it was an embarrassing situation: A collection agency hired to gather delinquent Stormwater fees dipping into tills at businesses and using other bullying tactics.

And it will stop.

This just came in from the city:

City Council stops till tap collections of City debts
City Council met in closed session on Tuesday, September 27, and decided to instruct A-1 Collections to no longer use till taps as a means of collecting on any judgments related to any City accounts. The City Council first learned of this collection method late Friday, September 23, from media reports and scheduled a closed session after their Formal Council Meeting yesterday to end this procedure effective immediately.

As of June, this mobile home par was delinquent on fees.
