Liberty tables utility bill amendment
LIBERTY - City officials tabled an ordinance amendment Friday that would have required a non-reimbursable fee for utility connection maintenance and hold owners of rental property liable for late utility payments.
The move came after more than eight property owners people showed up at City Hall to complain about the amendment.
The city is owed more than $21,000 in utility bills that have not been paid in the past few years, according to Mayor Steve Sweeney.
