BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - Hundreds of residents in the annexed area of Bay St. Louis have been enjoying free garbage collection service.

But the no-cost pick-up is about to come to an end, thanks to a new computer program.

Bay St. Louis Administrative Assistant Jerry Beaugez tells WLOX-TV in Biloxi (http://bit.ly/1lyvbzI ) that the uncollected fees amount to about $39,000 annually.

Beaugez is determining who’s not paying through a computer program provided to the city by the Harrison County’s tax assessor’s office.

He says the program compares existing structures in the annexed area with active garbage accounts.

Officials say once all of the properties have been identified, letters will go out to the homeowners within the next few weeks.
