With days left before leaving office, Burrell Ellis is tackling a major concern for residents.
In a letter released Wednesday, the outgoing DeKalb CEO addressed the county's water billing crisis.
Ellis said the county will send out about 50,000 statements that were withheld due to accuracy concerns.
The amount on these bills will be a rough estimate of the average water usage over the past 12 months, with the highest and lowest amounts removed.
Ellis says customers who are unhappy with the billed average should contact county officials.
