What happened was that the city
deactivated the gas service when
the former tenants moved out.
Charlene Gardner moved out of the
downstairs apartment on February
26, 1991 and the gas meter reading
was 5949. The Corbins moved into
the downstairs apartment on May
8, 1991 but they didn't request gas
and nothing was put into thc com-
puter system. On January 5, 1993
the city caught the error and found
the initial reading at 5949. Corbin
was billed on January 31 for
$599.26. Dan Hughes moved out
of the upstairs apartment on’ May
31, 1991. The meter reading was
2355. On June 7, 1991 the Corbins
occupied the upstairs apartment
and the reading was 2355. They
were billed on the second meter on
January 5, 1993 for $539.20.
Utilities were not cut off because
the couple was contesting the pay-
ment but officials say the current
bills must be paid.
Rosencrans said that in summer
months meters aren't activated until
the customer calls the natural gas
department for a winter pilot light-
ing. Gas Department personnel lit
the pilots, he said, but paper work
from the Gas Department didn't get
to City Hall. The error was caught
14 months later by a meter supervi-
sor who discovered the mistake.
Mrs. Corbin acknowledged that
she made a down payment in the
utility department for water and
electricity but did not make a down
payment for gas. Rosencrans said
Corbin gave a letter of credit for
Mrs. Corbin says the family
quarters are upstairs in the two sto-
ry house. She isn't disputing the
"The city blatantly made an error
but they necd to correct it on a case
to case basis, not what they do for
all customers," she said.
She said she was told by city of-
ficials to take out a loan
0 pay ‘the back bill. "We didn't
like that statement but my husband
has cooled off," she said.
Mr. Corbin was unavailable for
comment. His wife returned a call
made by The Herald to the resi-
dence. Mrs. Corbin said he was
coaching at Myers Park High and
would not be home until late
