Borough residents who have received a notice for delinquent sewer fees are advised to contact Creditech at 1-866-300-1721.
The now bankrupt Don Wilkinson Agency collected sewer fees for 2011, and council forgave one quarter of fees for 2011 because of the problems with the agency. Berkheimer collected sewer fees in 2012 and 2013 and was terminated as collector on Dec. 31. Ronald Jeffery was appointed to collect fees from 2014 forward, but Creditech was hired by council to collect delinquent fees from 2011 through 2013.
Anyone having a problem with payments should have their account number ready and any payment information to resolve matters from that time period when calling Creditech. The company is willing to work with any resident, but the burden of proof is upon the rate payer, borough officials said.
For further assistance, call the borough manager at 570-287-8586. Officials appreciate residents’ patience.
