Adams County, MS Trash Bill
The Adams County Board of Supervisors is considering taking county garbage customers with unusually large sanitation bills to court.
Supervisor Mike Lazarus brought up the idea at a meeting of the supervisors on Tuesday.
Lazarus says Pike County has initiated a program of taking sanitation customers with unpaid bills to court and getting a judgment against the customer.
Lazarus suggested taking ten or twenty customers with the highest bills and using them as test subjects to see if taking them to court could be an effective means of collecting the bills owed.
The supervisors agreed to have County Administrator Joe Murray study the system other counties are using and see if it can be implemented in Adams County.
