Cleveland City Council to collect delinquent utility accounts
By Dean Dyer Staff
CLEVELAND - The City of Cleveland wants to go after delinquent utility account customers. It was revealed at Monday's City Council meeting that there are $88,000 in overdue water and sewer service account charges.
Councilman Rush Mauney said he was disturbed when he heard about the accounts.
City Clerk Connie Tracas told the council that these overdue accounts go back to 2000. Tracas said the amount was, at one time, $106,000, but they have been able to get that down to the $88,000 mark. Mauney made a motion to turn most of the accounts over to a collection agency.
Cleveland Police Chief John Foster said he might be able to help them in locating some of those who have skipped out, leaving a tab with the city.
