Hillsville forgives part of church utility bill

-A A +A

When a water line ran directly into the town sewer, a Hillsville church ended up with a utility bill totaling nearly $14,324.

By Christopher Brooke, Reporter

HILLSVILLE — The Hillsville church that had a hidden water leak over two billing periods received a $2,100 discount off its bill from the town.
Hillsville Pentecostal Holiness Church did not realize that someone hooked a water pipe directly into a drain for the sewage system.
This resulted in an outside spigot being turned on and running for a long time, creating a water and sewer bill that could have been as much as $14,323.74.
