Courts to collect overdue utility bills

The Pointe Coupee Parish Police Jury agreed unanimously to allow small claims courts in the parish's 12 Justice of the Peace districts to handle past-due utility bills.
The Advocate reports he jury acted Tuesday night after Juror Justin Cox revealed the parish had more than $1.3 million in unpaid bills for garbage and mosquito abatement services alone.
The parish's small claim courts are made up of a constable and justice of the peace for each of the parish's 12 Justice of the Peace districts.
The jury will pay the courts an $80 filing fee for each case prosecuted, along with other associated court costs.
