PEORIA, Ill. -- The City of Peoria says that you shouldn't panic if your garbage collection fees look a little high this month.

City officials announced Tuesday that garbage collection bills for the month of October failed to show payments that were made during the previous month.

A resident who is up to date on his or her payment will have a $26.00 balance. The actual amount due is $13.00.

Individuals or households that are signed up for automatic payments will not be double charged.
