GRSD Billing

Friday, January 17, 2020

GRSD agreed to our proposal requiring a payment of only $175K after credit for double billings and over metering that amounted to about $1.5M.  The City's Treasurer and Engineers convinced GRSD and their third-party accountants of the accuracy of their calculations on the City’s behalf and for the most part we prevailed in our requests. The costs were substantially reduced and future monthly invoices will be confirmed prior to payment. The installation of new meters is the major issue to be resolved since GRSD has scheduled a 2021 installation while we requested immediate action. We will continue to pressure GRSD to make the earlier installation and the monthly invoices will be closely scrutinized. Work continues eliminating I/I in the City’s sewer system but the GRSD billing fiasco is closed.
