DeKalb commissioners will receive update on high water bills

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.
