Rock Hill Council to consider changing utility billing policy

Updated:

ROCK HILL, S.C. —

The Rock Hill City Council will consider whether to change its utility billing policy.

The proposed change comes after the city discovered it overcharged one industrial customer roughly $800,000 for several years of electric service.

Council members have already voted in favor of restricting the city's liability to three years.

Right now, state law allows electric providers to act on billing mistakes dating from six months to a year.
