Wes Moore and his wife are disputing that they owed Baltimore Water $21,000 in unpaid water bills. But the Gubernatorial candidate's spokesman says, according to media reports, that they paid the bill out of an abundance of caution.
On Wednesday, an online Baltimore water bill database indicated that Moore last paid a $2,000 water bill for their home in March 2021. As of late Wednesday night, Moore owed the city $21,200, according to online city records. The most recent bill was due Sept. 26. The Baltimore Sun reports that the Moores were unaware of the overdue bills for their $2.35 million dollar Guilford home before Wednesday of this week.
Baltimore's water utility has had problems with its billing system and how it communicates overdue bills to its customers.
