The Gainesville Public Utilities Department reports hundreds of residents are owed refunds on their water accounts.
The department is urging individuals who think they might be owed money to check a list of names on the city website, www.gainesville.org/updated-list-of-water-refunds.
City officials say they owe more than $25,000 in refunds dating to 2008.
“We have exhausted all efforts to get in touch with the customers on the list,” Tina Wetherford, finance and administration division manager, said in a statement. “We really hope some of these people will come forward so we can settle their accounts.”
Customers who find their names on the list can contact the Public Utilities Department at 770-535-6878 to apply for their refund.
