BINGHAMTON, N.Y. —
A man disputing his water bill is not being allowed to pay with a check written on toilet paper. Ron Borgna, who is disputing the $2,509.66 bill, wrote a check on floral print, two-ply toilet paper Wednesday.
The disagreement began in September 2006 when Borgna received a $422.90 water bill. Borgna claims he was overbilled. With additional charges, penalties and late fees that bill has grown.
Binghamton city officials refused to accept the check. After a short argument, Borgna was escorted out of the building, the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin reported.
Borgna says he is appealing the judgment against him in small claims court.
