Attached is a letter to City of Erie customers, beginning on Monday, November 3, 2014 and continuing through the last week in December. These revised bills are a result of the City of Erie and the Erie Water Works instituting a new procedure aimed at collecting delinquent garbage bills. This new process will combine a customer’s garbage bill with their sewer bill. Should this new bill have a delinquent balance those customers would be subject to Erie Water Works collection procedures. By the direction of the City of Erie all payments made on the sewer/garbage bills must be applied to garbage delinquencies first before any payment can be applied to sewer services. Customers carrying a delinquent balance on their sewer account could face water termination. This new billing procedure applies only to residents and businesses that receive garbage collection services from the City of Erie.
