NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Public Works Committee members are expected to ask The Sewerage and Water Board pointed questions on what training staff received on the utility's new billing software.

According NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, the billing system rolled out in late October 2016, and it cost about $4.8 million to install.

Utility officials also said last month that they plan to pay the firm that provided the system another $114,000 for additional training.

According to the report, the system's installation was rushed and training was subpar.
