Re: Board Of Public Works reorganization

If I am understanding the collection procedure correctly, four letters were sent to those who were more than 180 days in arrears. Also, it sounds as though if the household had a member over 65 or a child under 10 or if the recipient was a disabled vet, the water would not be shut off. I am going by...
