According to Brick Patch Ocean County Freeholder Joseph H. Vicari’s Wants Utility companies to waive fees for Sandy victims that have lost their house or are displaced. any residents who have been displaced are now actually being double billed – first for utility usage in homes they can no longer live in, and then in homes they have relocated to, Vicari said.
You mean I’m not the only one having issue with being billed for the sewer bill for house that isn’t being lived in and has no running water??
Vicari said the county Department of Consumer Affairs is working on an analysis to determine the scope of the problem. More information and utility contacts should be available by early next week.
“We’re trying to work it out in a spirit of cooperation,” he said.
I hope this spreads to Monmouth County too, and when I say Monmouth county I mean Highlands.
