  • Edmond's utility woes

    BY RICHARD MIZE Real Estate Editor richardmize@oklahoman.com | Published: Sat, Jul 25, 2015

    EDMOND — The city of Edmond’s utility bills are a mess, but thankfully, city staff seem to have the patience to deal with the confusion they can cause. It took a staffer and I an entire hour the other day to go over my bills going back to November, before the city converted to a new utility billing software system. After an hour, and staring at the monthly statements and my notes since, I still can’t tell whether my own glitch was because of a hitch in the system. Part of my problem was that I missed paying my bill in April, which I didn’t realize until well into that hour. Maybe the Postal Service failed. Maybe I misplaced the statement. But maybe a gremlin in the system ate it.
