Water Meter Glitch Means Bigger Bills in Hollywood

Residents in one South Florida city are finding out that they have some hefty water bills coming up. Due to a glitch with water meters, 170 customers in Hollywood were under-billed and are receiving corrected statements. 

City spokeswoman Raelin Storey told the Sun-Sentinel customers will get up to 60 months to pay off the balances and that the city will offer a 50 percent discount. 

Storey said the average water bill is $122 a month for using 700 cubic feet of water, but if the meter isn't working, the same bill would be only about $50.The highest bill was $140,000, went to a 24-unit condominium complex, or about $5,800 for each unit. The smallest bill is $20 for a single month, at a single-family home.
