Phoenixville Contracts With Norristown Firm for Debt Collection
Phoenixville is going after those who owe debts to the borough.

The Phoenixville Borough Council voted, 7 to 1, on Tuesday night to award a contract to Norristown firm Portnoff Law Associates Ltd., The Times Herald Reported. Portnoff will be authorized to collect delinquent fees on behalf of the borough.

Phoenixville is owed nearly $1 million is delinquent trash, water and sewer fees, The Mercury reported in March.

At a March Borough Council meeting,  Borough Manager E. Jean Krack said that attempting to collect that is more work than the borough can take on alone.

It was unclear how Portnoff would be paid, The Times Herald said.
