Loleta residents charged double for incorrect sewer bill

Residents in Rio Dell and Loleta have been charged the wrong amount for their most recent annual water and sewer tax.

According to Joseph Mellett, Humboldt County's Auditor, Loleta residents were charged double, and Rio Dell residents were not charged at all.

The bills went out last week, on Loleta resident's bill's they were charged for Rio Dell's tax.

Mellet said the problem is due to an incorrect tax code in the software. He is encouraging residents not to pay the incorrect charge and is working to get a corrected bill out to residents next week.

All incorrect payments will be refunded he said.
