Council took the first steps to combine garbage, sewer and water bills. This resolution is in response to the city trying to collect millions of dollars in delinquent garbage fees.

Council is asking the Erie City Water Authority to change its quarterly practice to make the refuse and sewer fees charged and paid together.

The resolution also includes an amendment to the collection agreement for payments received by the authority to go to the most delinquent charge first.

Today's reading of the resolution is the first time council voted on the issue.
