Submitted by: Pam Ehler, Director of Finance and Information Systems

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a resolution authorizing staff to write off uncollectible water, sewer and solid
waste accounts in the amount of $20,296.68.

PREVIOUS ACTION
Since 1996, it has become an annual practice to present to Council the total number and
amount of uncollectible water, sewer and garbage accounts from the previous year.
Council has then authorized staff to write-off these uncollectible accounts to bad debt.

BACKGROUND
There are a total of 56 utility accounts with unpaid balances totaling $20,296.68. These
closed accounts have been sent to collections and have been deemed uncollectible at
this point in time. The existence of unpaid accounts distorts the accounts receivable
balance. Writing off the uncollectible accounts will reflect a more accurate balance.
Year Amount Number of Accounts Loss Rate 2001 $20,296.68 56 1.4%

FISCAL IMPACT
$20,296.68, which the budget can absorb.
