JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Jackson City Councilman Kenneth Stokes is calling for the City of Jackson to assist the people of Jackson with their water bills.
This comes after the City was awarded nearly $90 million settlement after faulty work was done in Jackson. As a result of the issue, neighbors received faulty or inflated water bills while others were not receiving bills at all.
Councilman Stokes is asking for customers to receive $1,000 payments and $200 bill adjustments. He said he plans to bring his proposal to the City Council at the meeting on Tuesday, January 19.
