We are ratepayers in the Byron Shire with a property in Paterson Street. My partner and I recently received a water bill from the council stating that an amount of $1,925.76 is owing because there here had been incorrect meter readings done in the previous four quarters. Council had subcontracted someone to do the readings and I heard on the grapevine that this contractor subcontracted someone else who, apparently, if he couldn’t see the meters did not bother looking for them.

Now with an amount of more that $317.16 already paid, they also want the above amount on top of that. Usually the yearly average for the property is around $1,070.

We have complained to the NSW Ombudsman but we have not had a response so far. We rent the property to wonderful people so we will be doing all we can to have this unfair amount changed.

As we live in Sydney and only keep up with Byron news sporadically, we don’t know if any noise has been made of this by others.

Kyria & Paul Frame, Randwick
