A third of Biloxi's water bills are going out late this month, but the bills will also have a later due date to make up for the late bill.
The city bills its 13,417 customers in three cycles, and a snag in a computer system caused Cycle 1 -- nearly 3,700 bills -- to go out last week, 10 days later than usual. The first cycle has a normal due date of the 15th of each month, but the due date has been extended until the 25th for that particular cycle.
Cycles 2 and 3 – with 4,745 and 5,000 customers respectively -- are being sent out on time, with their usual due dates. Cycle 1 will return to its normal dates in November.
