The Hancock County Regional Solid Waste Management Authority removed two bills from their docket on Monday due to the city of Bay St. Louis' delinquent bills.
"The two bills removed were waste management disposal of garbage," Brenda Ford of Compton Engineering and Solid Waste clerk said. "One bill is one month past due and is $35,590 and the current bill is $32,587."
Bay St. Louis Mayor and Hancock County Regional Solid Waste Management Authority's Board President Les Fillingame assured board members that Bay St. Louis would be making a payment by the end of this week.
"These bills will just be taken off very temporarily," Fillingame said. "Payment from Bay St. Louis will be very soon."
"These bills will be paid subject to receipt of funds from Bay St. Louis," Hancock County Solid Waste Management Authority attorney Ronnie Artigues said.
