The Knox Board of Public Works approved a utility bill credit for Reagent Chemical.
Knox City Clerk-Treasurer Jeff Houston explained that a coding error occurred and the industry was billed $397.74 more than necessary. A decimal point in the wrong spot was reportedly to blame and was picked up by the staff.
Houston asked the board to approve a credit to Reagent’s account which was approved.
A similar incident occurred with J.W. Hicks which was resolved. Houston noted that this is the only other correction on an account like this that will need to be made.
