East Grand Forks may have to toss out a few bucks to settle a couple of garbage bill accounts. A property owner contacted the city to inquire how they could reduce their monthly bills for lots on the 300 block of 4th Street NW and on the 500 block of Demers Avenue. After further review city staff determined a coding error resulted in the parcels being charged for Large Commercial vs Landlord garbage rates. The billing error dates back to 2013 and 2014 respectively. The city council will be asked to issue a refund in excess of 19-thousand dollars. The council will take up the issue at tonight's work session at five p-m.
