Despite persistent collection efforts by Rush supervisors and office staff, many residents still haven't paid their sewer and trash bills. Delinquent sewer bills total $94,573 and delinquent trash bills total $52,074, supervisors said during a meeting Thursday.
"We have sent letters out," said Chairman Shawn Gilbert. "And we will shut off water for delinquents in two weeks."
Since December 2013, $31,425 has been collected from delinquent sewer customers on the Hometown system, and $11,320 in past-due garbage bills has been collected.
