A three-month examination of county tax records and utility and fire department maps reveals that the Hilton Head No. 1 Public Service District has negligently overcharged about 220 Hilton Head landowners, most of them poor blacks, at least $75,000. In addition, the utility's commissioners more than doubled their salaries in 1996 and only reduced the salaries slightly after Hilton Head's state representative complained. (June 2, 1996)
