Utility Systems answers student questions

Tuesday 10 November Utility Systems answers student questions

Utility Billing and Connection Support Manager Gina Linsley served as one of seven panelists who participated in Florida City Government Week with four local schools. Students from Somerset College Preparatory Academy, Port St. Lucie High School, Southport Middle School, and Morningside Elementary School asked pre-recorded questions and the panelists answered them live in the Council Chambers.

Gina was asked by Morningside 4th grader Shelby about the number of employees it takes to efficiently send bills to more than 78,000 customers. Charlie and Callie, both in 7th grade at Southport Middle School, asked Gina if there are any programs for those who can’t pay their bill, and also asked her to explain how billing and customer service operate.

The panelists were impressed by the students’ smart, relevant questions about how their local government works.
