CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 20

Meeting Date: June 22, 2004

Subject/Title: Approve a resolution authorizing staff to write off uncollected water, sewer and solid waste accounts in the amount of $21,720.95.

Prepared by: Donna Dwyer, Utility Billing Supervisor

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

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a resolution authorizing staff to write off uncollected utility accounts (water, sewer and solid waste) in the amount of $21,720.95.

PREVIOUS ACTION
Since 1996, staff has annually presented to City Council the total number and dollar amount of delinquent water, sewer and solid waste accounts from the previous year. Based on unsuccessful attempts at collection, Council has then authorized staff to write off these uncollected accounts.

BACKGROUND
For fiscal year 2003/04, there are a total of 47 utility accounts with unpaid balances totaling $21,720.95. These closed accounts have been delinquent for at least a year, sent to collections and are now deemed uncollectible at this point. The purpose for this write off is that the existence of unpaid accounts distorts the accounts receivable balance. Clearing the uncollectible accounts will reflect a more accurate balance.

FISCAL IMPACT
The total amount of utility accounts billed in the one year period was $17,439,470.48. The write off amount of $21,720.95 represents .12% of this annual revenue.
