Homeowner overcharged thousands by The City of Atlanta tweets mayor for response

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Mayor Kasim Reed is still determining if he can give a full refund to an Edgewood homeowner for a billing error that dates back a decade.  The city overcharged the homeowner by nearly 4000 dollars.  Mayor Reed told CBS46 that he expected a decision by the end of last week.  

It's one week later and the Edgewood homeowner is still waiting for an answer.  So on Friday Better Call Harry helped April Lloyd set up a twitter account. Her first tweet was to Mayor Reed. 

Until recently, Mayor Reed's staff claimed it was the homeowner's responsibility to catch the billing error. However, after a series of CBS46 reports, the mayor agreed to review the city's policy of a 36 month maximum refund.
