Council Approves Removal of Old Unpaid Utility Bills

Outgoing Deputy Manager of Finance and Administration Janet Bettinger looks on as Incoming Deputy Manager of Finance and Administration Bob Westervelt made the case as to why it’s bad for business to carry unpaid utility bills on the Department of Public Utilities accounts receivable ledger beyond five years. The debts cannot be collected because the people responsible are dead, left town or otherwise are indisposed. Council voted to approve allowing removal of those unpaid bills from the DPU ledger.
