ALTON—The City of Alton Commission on April 9 approved write-offs of $281,520 in past-due, uncollected sewer fees. The fees have accumulated since 2005, and had never been billed by Sharyland Water Supply, which had made the monies presently uncollectable.
“This is basically a cleaning of the books that was recommended by our auditor,” City Manager Jorge Arcaute said. “It creates a more accurate record; we don’t want to live under the illusion that we are going to get this money at some point.”
