The sewer board also agreed to outsource the city’s sewer bills at its Thursday meeting.
Utility Billing Manager Elisha Dale presented the request to the board to allow L&D Mail Masters, Inc. to print and mail the sewer bills for the city.
“By going with L&D, the total cost will be about $84,870 a year, versus $87,174 if we do it ourselves,” Ashack said.
Dale said it takes the sewer billing office about two days to prepare and mail the bills, which would be eliminated if the billing was outsourced.
The recommendation to have L&D Mail Masters, of New Albany, to handle the sewer bills at a cost of $24,870 per year, in addition to postage, was unanimously approved.
