BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

Hundreds of folks in Bainbridge saw much higher sewage bills this month than ever before.

City officials said a sewage cap was accidentally removed.

Some residents who normally paid around $17 were shocked to see bills way over $100 this month.

Tuesday night, the city council passed a resolution to establish a 12,000 gallon cap on sewage charges.

"We will make sure everybody gets left whole, and nobody gets harmed by our mistake. We're fixing it and I think the council action last night was as quick as we could do it," said Chris Hobby, Bainbridge City Manager.

Those who already paid their bills will receive a credit.
