Hard work by two employees of the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office has been recognized as the driving force behind a recent payment of late sewer fees by two mobile home parks in Granite City.  State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons announced more than $290-thousand has been paid by the park’s owner to the Special Service Area (SSA) Number 1.

Lakeshore Estates, LLC and Edwards Associates, LLC, who own and operate the Edwards Mobile Home Park and Lakeshore Estates Mobile Home Park on West Chain of Rocks Road and the Old 66 Mobile Home Park on Maryville Road both in Granite City made the payment last week. The State’s Attorney’s Office took over the recovery efforts of unpaid bills for the SSA in November 2017, hoping to save the district 15% by doing collection work in house.  Gibbons credited Assistant State’s Attorney’s Deb Besserman and Tanja Cook Sedabres for their aggressive collection efforts against the worst offenders.  Gibbons says their hard work is a victory for taxpayers who eventually have to pick up the bill for unpaid accounts.
