The Giles County Public Service Authority bills everyone in the county for trash pick-up whether or not they actually provide this service. Most are bullied into paying it, but I refuse to pay until they actually pick something up. Consequently, I am being suied for 3 or more years worth of these bogus bills.

In Virginia there is actually a State Law that prohidits them from doing so. You wouldn't think there would be a necessity for a law preventing someone for billing for nothing, but there us (Act 357, 1989)

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Demand an audit of them and file a lawsuit to include the Giles County Treasurer

AUTHOR: Bd - (U.S.A.)

I used to work for them (PSA and Giles County Water) and they are a funny bunch of people. The entire board of the PSA used me and my situation to fire the former Director (Long Story).

Since the PSA is in charge of trash and the county is in charge of Water they have combined the two onto one bill that is presented by the Giles County Treasurer. By doing this they can threaten to turn off your water even if the majority of your bill is for trash pick-up. They do not allow people to read their own meter and track usage because sometimes they have to guess at it based on your average bills in the past...this is fraud.

When employed there I asked if I could halt trash delivery because I could burn it and what I could not burn I could haul to the dumpster sites they have set up. I was told "No." I have to pay for trash pick-up regardless. They are trying to do this to customers who have proposed sewer and county water lines planned as well. If you don't hook up you still have to pay something.

Start a petition and circulate it around the local stores. Write your legislators and if it's a federal law ...write Congressman Boucher.
Also contact a guy named Doug Turner in Pearisburg. He is full of juicy info.
