(ERIE, Pa.) - A woman paid a $200 sewer bill with a shoebox full of nickels, dimes and quarters, much to the chagrin of her township's utility company.

Officials in Millcreek Township, Penn., along with its water and sewer authorities, have adopted a policy limiting how much change they'll accept from residents paying sewer bills and other fees.

David Sterrett, executive director of the authorities, tells the Erie Times-News that officials came up with the policy after a woman showed up with the shoebox last month.

Sterrett says it took four employees an hour to count, sort and put the money into paper sleeves.

The new policy limits residents to using $10 in unrolled coins or $20 in rolled coins when paying bills.
