Council to discuss penalty fee on utilities for FY 2017/2018:

Ballis proposed to the council setting a penalty fee for those residents that would receive a certification letter for payment not received for their water or garbage service. Before the charges are certified to the County Auditor for collection the City would include a penalty fee on the account. The Councilmember’s were in agreement and asked Ballis to submit the necessary paperwork at the next Council meeting. Resident Darlene Powers asked if the City would consider a quarterly or semi-annual utility bill instead of the current yearly bill. Mayor Traughber explained the history of billing yearly and stated at some point with the city staff structure changes this would be more feasible. Councilman Ladegaard explained that residents have the option to pay monthly or quarterly on their yearly bill and that it wasn’t necessary to pay the full balance at once as long as regular payments are submitted and the bill is paid in full by June 30th of each year. No action taken, information only.

Council Reports: Ladegaard as
