BEACHWOOD, Ohio – The Cleveland Division of Water is proving you don’t even need a heartbeat to get a skyrocketing water bill.

As bizarre and insensitive as that may sound, Beachwood’s Bet Olam Cemetery received a $5,095.63 water bill plus a shut-off notice for water the cemetery’s supervisor insists could not possibly have been used.

The total bill exceeds $11,000 when combined with sewer charges.

The cemetery’s quarterly bill is normally about $53.

Bet Olam, which in Hebrew is translated as “the house of eternity,” is a non-profit cemetery founded in 1910 and remain one of the pre-eminent cemeteries in northeast Ohio.
