Linwood among cities to receive refund as part of attorney general judgement
Linwood is one of 13 cities and towns in Kansas that will be reimbursed by a New York company after being falsely billed for services.
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced Wednesday that he had entered into a consent judgment with Nationwide Environmental Services of New York, after his office accused the firm of billing the cities for products they never ordered or received.
In all, the company will refund about $10,600 to the 13 cities, including about $130 to Linwood. The largest refunds were of about $2,650 to Hoisington and about $2,240 to Hays.
The agreement was approved in Leavenworth County District Court on Tuesday, according to a release from the attorney general's office.
