(LaPorte, IN) - LaPorte residents will have to start paying what they owe on their water and sewer bills soon. The city has not been forcing people to pay or shutting off water during the pandemic.
On June 1st, those debts come due from action taken by the city council last night as the governor loosens restrictions on the state’s economy. Mayor Tom Dermody says the city will work with people. For the most part, officials say water and sewer bills have been getting paid at a percentage well above many other communities in the state.
