ST. GABRIEL, La. (AP) - The city of St. Gabriel has managed to shrink the outstanding debt owed by residents for sewer bills by more than $250,000 over the past eight months

Mayor Lionel Johnson tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1INirOC) the city entered into an agreement giving Iberville Parish authority to shut off water service to customers who refused to pay their outstanding sewer bills.

Outstanding residential sewer bills have been an ongoing problem for St. Gabriel, which has gotten them into hot water for the past 13 years during the city’s annual financial audit.

St. Gabriel residents are charged a flat fee of $15 a month for sewer service.
