About 30 residents called the Macon NAACP on Friday to complain about their water bills and 12 additional people stopped by to drop off copies of their bills, chapter President Al Tillman said.
A day earlier, the organization announced it had received more than a dozen complaints of residents’ bills being doubled or tripled without an increase in usage.
The Macon Water Authority, however, did not receive an unusual amount of calls to its customer service center Friday, Executive Director Tony Rojas said.
Tillman said he will be at the Macon NAACP office from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday collecting more bills.

He plans to take the collected bills and present the complaints to the Bibb County Commission, Macon City Council and Macon Water Authority next week.
