Bob Cacy, owner of Lynn Lane Self-Storage in Broken Arrow, Okla., recently received an $8,000 bill for storm-water fees due to a city billing error. The blunder could cost area business owners more than $200,000, unless they convince City Hall to eat its own mistake. According to Keith Sterling, the city's director of communications, the error was a human one resulting when job duties shifted between departments three years ago. Storm-water billing got lost in the shuffle, and now businesses are expected to pay the price.
