$2.5 Million in Delinquent Garbage Bills in the City

Total amount of accounts receivable at any time is always about $1 million based on the billing schedule. But if you take that out of the equation, there's $1.5 million that hasn't been paid in the last year.
December 6, 2013 - The City of Erie has $2.5 million in delinquent garbage bills that some city residents have neglected.

Total amount of accounts receivable at any time is always about $1 million based on the billing schedule.

But if you take that out of the equation, there's $1.5 million that hasn't been paid in the last year.

The City of Erie's Finance Director says many of those who are delinquent with the bills are landlords.

If someone is late by six to nine months, a lien is placed on their property, but that doesn't always get the resident to catch up on the garbage bill.

Erie isn't the only one experiencing this problem.

Scranton has around eight million dollars in delinquent garbage bills.
