I'm sure we'll be able to tell the difference, now that they're back at "work."

City Services should bill the property owner-landlord, not the tenant directly. Let the landlord property owner collect from the tenant.

Engage an aggressive collection agency for x% to collect past due balances, then attach a lien to the property if necessary.

City should not burden honest bill payers with overpaying to compensate for deadbeat service users just to warm Lil Choke's marxist bollocks.

Krusatyr, no need to come up with new ways here. You bill them for the water they use. If they don’t pay, you disconnect the water. If they decide they want their water back, they pay the bill, late fees, and a reconnection fee. If you don’t disconnect water, people don’t pay. If you disconnect the water, they do pay. Running a water company is unbelievably simple if you are willing to simply honor the lessons of the past.

I have two properties in Jackson. Both have large balances. Both have large balances that are not accurate. Both have large balances that are not accurate because both were billed using the Estimated Usage and I know one of the, maybe both still show "estimated usage" on the most recent bill.

Anyway, so they both had "estimated usage" for so long, well, both also had an estimated usage that also accrued an excess usage charge. Guess what, the following year, that same estimated usage was used with the same excess usage charge. I have not been checking it each time as I grew tired, but after complaining of this, my estimated usage was lower than actual usage for several months.

So, Jackson will not collect fraudulent billing from this property owner.

Why even pay your water bill if you live in Jackson? These clown would never be able to successfully take you to court and win.

Back in April, the City of Jackson followed State Law & shut down
for the Confederate Memorial Day Holiday.

The irony of that is hilarious.

I think the handwritten notice said something like "closed for a State Holiday".

If y'all don't pay your water bills Lord Chowke will veto you.

Hello 4:22
We have an incompetent marxist mayor in Jackson who intentionally permits indigents to not pay, thus burdening those that do with extra cost.

Mostly they are tenant deadbeats who have an entitlement attitude which is buttressed by the mayor and probably also by some Judges.

Jackson is millions in arrears, so it is stupid to use the courts to fight deadbeat tenants. It is smarter and more expedient
to leverage the property owner at this juncture, with collecting agency and property lien backup. Of course water can also be cut off, as you suggested, but that's exactly where our mayor will jump in and forbid it.

So why not force the landlord to be responsible for the bill, he will then be more careful about selecting financially qualified tenants.

I sold my business in jack town last September and have yet to receive my water deposit back. I owed it for 21 years and paid on time ever month. So when I call to ask they tell me it’s a process to get it back. What a joke

LOL @ 4:22. These folks will straight pipe a new water supply before the cutoff guy leaves the driveway. Bypass the meter entirely. Maybe that cutoff shit works where he lives, it don't work in Jxn.

@8:31 PM The check's in the mail, right? The deposit trust fund may be a little light on the balance, right? Shad? Shad?

Krusatyr, that is a valid point, but the Public Service commission doesn't allow that. If a tenant/renter wants water, and is willing to sign the user agreement, and pay all applicable fees and deposits, then you have to provide the water. You can't say "I will only provide it to the landlord".

Oh thank God. Now they can get back to pocketing those cash payments !

The most coveted positions in that office are the cashier's jobs. Wink, wink.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
