NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

New Orleans City Council members said Thursday they are not getting the reports they have requested from the Sewerage and Water Board and they continue to be inundated by complaints of billing and manpower and lack of performance.

The council voted unanimously in favor of having the agency provide a written report on progress and report back for a June public works meeting.

Earlier this month, council members sent a strongly worded letter to the S&WB alleging that the agency has been flouting state law by not fully informing the council about its operations.

The board responded, saying several initiatives to improve accountability and customer service are already underway.
