Mt. Jewett sewer board sticks by billing policy

January 11, 2012

MT. JEWETT – The Mt. Jewett Regional Sewer Authority is sticking by a billing policy that has been established at previous meetings.

Both issues surfaced Tuesday at the authority's monthly meeting at the borough building.
The board has advised Denis Rettger of Mt. Jewett that he is responsible for "unpaid sewer bills" for persons who pay him rent for mobile home sites along Maple Lane.
