State Affirms Gary Sanitary Billing Practice

Share this post

The state has ruled in favor of the Gary Sanitary District's billing practice where payments are first applied to trash pickup, then sewer service.  If a bill goes unpaid, water service is shut off.. A group of Gary residents argued against the practice, and the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission ruled on the matter. Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson applauded the decision, saying trash collection and sewer maintenance are services everyone must use, and that it's not fair for only part of the population to pay their bills while everyone benefits. The Gary Sanitary District also provides sanitary sewer service to Hobart, Lake Station and Merrillville.
