In Defiance, delinquent water accounts are becoming an issue.
Council, during their regular meeting, was made aware that while the percentage of delinquent accounts isn’t huge right now, it is a problem that needs to be addressed.
A committee meeting has been scheduled for 6:30 p.m. July 15 in the city service building to discuss the water matter in more detail.
$70,000… that’s the amount that is apparently delinquent at this time according to some. Others put the figure at around $44,000, although it’s unclear why there is such a wide discrepancy.
Either way, it’s not a huge amount, considering the annual water and sewer revenues in Defiance add up to around $8 Million, but all agree that it does need attention.
