File #: 3123-2018    Version: 1
Type: Ordinance Status: Passed
File created: 11/2/2018 In control: Public Utilities Committee
On agenda: 12/10/2018 Final action: 12/13/2018
Title: To authorize the Director of Public Utilities to write off, as uncollectible, two unpaid accounts due to the City of Columbus, Department of Public Utilities, Division of Power, in the amount of Forty-nine Thousand, Eighty Dollars and Nineteen Cents. ($49,080.19)
Explanation

BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to write off the debts owed to the Division of Power for the uncollectible electric accounts, as follows:

ACCOUNT NO. NAME LOCATION AMOUNT
593631-1297098 Maramor Candy Co. 1855 E. 17th Avenue $28,737.72
597552-1299865 Jaeger Commerce Park 560 W. Nationwide Blvd. $20,342.47

These amounts represent power charges and surcharges predating November 30, 2016. Attempts to collect were explored and the Department of Public Utilities has been advised by the City Attorney's Office that attempts to locate additional assets or parties responsible for the debt has been unsuccessful and the amounts due are uncollectible. Therefore, the Department of Public Utilities is requesting authorization to write the accounts off as uncollectible.

FISCAL IMPACT: Formally writing off this debt as uncollectible officially recognizes that the City will forego this revenue. This step is prudent to maintaining accurate, timely and realistic accounting records.
