DeKalb County commissioners will hold an evening meeting  on Tuesday where they will hear from the public about the county's lingering issues with costly -- and often inaccurate -- water bills.

At this regularly scheduled “committee of the whole” meeting, the Board of Commissioners will hear from two advisory groups: one that is studying water billing issues and another looking into needed updates for the aging watershed system.

There will also be a public comment period where homeowners plan  to share their experiences with skyrocketing water bills.

The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the DeKalb Watershed Management Inspectors office at 4572 Memorial Drive in Decatur in Training Room A.
