PETERSBURG, Va. — A community forum is underway in Petersburg Thursday night that promised to shed light on the city’s water bill woes.

Petersburg Mayor Howard Myers is expected to reveal findings of a study into the city’s water bill issues and take questions from concerned residents at the historic Union Train Station.

In a statement provided to CBS 6 last week, Myers said the former city attorney hired Paul Goldman to look into the water billing controversy.

“In my effort to make sure the people of Petersburg learn the truth about the Johnson Controls water meter contract fiasco, and the water billing mess, I had the one person who was trying to get the true facts – Mr. Paul Goldman – provide factual insights from his investigation to members of the City Council several weeks ago. I wanted to make sure the people’s representatives were kept abreast of the situation./blockquote>
