A programming error has been discovered in the rate calculation in the most recent system conversion for the average sewer bill offered by the Bossier Parish Police Jury. The most recently mailed bills did not include this calculation.
Sewer system officials said the new billing system has been corrected and new bills will reflect the correct amounts. New bills will be due Dec. 5.
Correct bills include the average billing for sewer usage rather than actual rates calculated on flow data received from meter readings for all customers who qualify for average billing.
Officials recommend that all sewer customers pay their current bill. Customers’ next month bill will include the net adjustment due to the calculation error. If this creates a specific financial hardship, the police jury will refund any overpayment once billings are corrected.
