Gainesville looking for water customers owed refunds

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - The Gainesville Public Utilities Department said it owes some water customers refunds from their accounts, and they are trying to track down those customers.

Tina Wetherford, Finance and Administration Division Manager, said the refunds date back to July, 2008. The total amount is more than $25,000.

"We have exhausted all efforts to get in touch with the customers on the list. We really hope some of these people will come forward so we can settle their accounts," said Wetherford.

Wetherford said accounts prior to June 2008 have been turned over to the State of Georgia as unclaimed.

Right now, there are two lists on the city's website for customers to review. (See link below.) One list dates June 2008-2012. The second list includes refunds for 2013.

Wetherford said if a customer finds his or her name, they should contact the
Public Utilities Department at 770-535-6878.
