Bill Suits nearly fainted Saturday when he opened up his mobile home park's monthly water bill. The statement from Gulfport's Water Department said he owed $479,673.
A typical water bill at Suits' Pass Road retirement park is around $400, not a half million. So Monday morning, he went to the water department to fight the bill, and found out he only owed $436.
That's a $479,237 mistake.
"I'd have to sell the park to even be able to pay that," Suits said with a laugh. "I told them down there, I said, 'You almost gave me a heart attack when I got this bill, when I opened it up.'"
