Texan gets another wrong water bill topping $66K

Friday - 8/2/2013, 2:10pm  ET

DALLAS (AP) -- A Dallas man says he's shocked to have been swamped with a nearly $67,000 erroneous water bill a few months after a similar computer error.

Tom Hoffman says he is looking forward to getting a new bill after the latest mistake that Dallas officials blame on a bad water meter.

WFAA-TV (http://bit.ly/1e853CN ) reported Monday that Hoffman canceled his auto-payment system earlier this year after getting a water bill for more than $66,000. Hoffman's financial accounts were frozen before the error was fixed.

Now it's happened again.

City of Dallas spokesman Frank Librio says the stuck meter has been replaced and accurate billing will follow.

Librio also apologized for the error and the inconvenience to Hoffman.
