City Officials Suspended for Water Bill Gaffe, News-Journal Says
Two Florida city finance and customer service officials have been suspended with pay pending an investigation into billing undercharges for water and sewer services, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.
An auditor will be hired to examine how a billing mistake involving incorrect water rates and faulty meters cost Port Orange at least $825,000 in lost revenue for water and sewer services provided to Daytona Beach Shores customers over 43 months, the newspaper said, citing city officials.
“There are a lot of questions and few answers at this point,” the newspaper quoted Mayor Allen Green as saying.
