Changes coming for Lee water, sewer customers

LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) -   billing cycle is being split and water rates are increasing.   If you live on the East side of U. S. 19, your billing date will remain the same.   But If you live on the west side of 19, your bill due date is changing from the 30th to the 15th, so you'll get two bills this month.

Another change that affects everyone is that water bills are going up about six dollars a month.

"The customers on the west side of 19 will also be billed again on September 15th and that will be due on September 25th. That is water from August the ninth to September the 6th and garbage for October," says Lee County Utility Billing Director, LeClaire Bryan.

The change was made because billing was getting as many as 240 cut-offs during a billing cycle. This method will divide up the county's 5,000 customers into two billing periods on the 15th and 30th.
