HIGH POINT — High Point Mayor Bernita Sims owes the city hundreds of dollars in utility bills, some of which are nearly a year past due, according to city records.
As of Monday, the unpaid balance for electricity, water and sewer-related charges for Sims’ previous residence at 1720 Candlewood Court was $538.78. The balance covers four billing cycles between Aug. 21, 2012, and Dec. 18, 2012. The due dates for the unpaid bills ranged from October 2012 until Jan. 10. City records show the delinquencies include an attempted payment of $223.46 on Nov. 30, 2012, that was returned for insufficient funds, resulting in a $25 returned check fee.
Sims rented the property and did not own it, but the account for the utilities serving the property was in her name.
Sims said she moved out in December 2012. Read More
