Town Says “Enough” After Woman Pays Bill With $200 In Coins

ERIE, Pa. (April 2, 2014) Officials in Millcreek Township, Pa., are telling residents to keep the change.

The town and its water and sewer authorities adopted a policy limiting how much change they'll accept from residents who are paying sewer bills and other fees.

David Sterrett, executive director of the authorities, said officials came up with the policy after a woman showed up last month with a shoebox full of nickels, dimes and quarters to pay a $200 sewer bill.

Sterrett says it took four employees an hour to count, sort and put the money into paper sleeves.

The new policy limits residents to using $10 in unrolled coins or $20 in rolled coins when paying bills.
