City of Larned considers billing changes

LARNED - Every month, the city of Larned sends an average of 529 late notices, or "red" bills, to utility customers. That's nearly 20 percent of the city's 2,700 utility contracts. Larned's City Council declared that's too many, and something needs to change. They tasked Kara Rath, the utility clerk, and Monica Steiner, the finance director, to conduct a study of how other cities like Larned combat similar problems. Rath and Steiner presented their proposal to the council Monday night.
