DUE DATE, LATE CHARGE, DEPOSITS
This bill is for services rendered and is due upon receipt. Bill will become past due 21 days from statement date. Accounts not paid by the Past Due Date will be assessed a Late Charge of $3.00 or 2% of the past due amount, whichever is greater, not to exceed $250.00 each month. Accounts with a past due balance are subject to service disconnection thirty (30) days after the statement date. Failure to receive the bill shall not constitute a defense for nonpayment. Notice of delinquency may be incorporated in or given with the bill for the account. Services may be disconnected even if no one is at the premises.
Deposits amounts are based on two (2) times the average monthly bill, and must be paid prior to connection of service. Accounts that become past due may be subject to a deposit increase. Deposits are applied against accounts at time of final billing. Interest on deposits is credited to accounts annually according to an index rate as provided by Ordinance. Deposits for residential accounts may be refunded after (12) twelve consecutive months of service provided that a good payment record has been established, and no dishonored checks have been received.
DISCONNECTION FOR NON-PAYMENT
If services are disconnected for non-payment, the total account balance is due immediately and must be paid in full before services will be reconnected. Services will be reconnected as rapidly as possible, but reconnection of services cannot be guaranteed the same day as payment is received.
To avoid disconnection of service: (1) Pay the entire balance in full by the Past Due After date or; (2) Reach agreement with the Customer Service Manager regarding the terms for payment of the total amount due (NOTE: Failure to reach an acceptable payment arrangement will not prevent disconnection of services), or; (3) File a written request with the Customer Service Manager, not later than twenty-six (26) days after the original statement date for an appeal to the City Manager, explaining good cause why services should not be terminated. You will be notified of the date, time and place of a hearing when you may present your case to the City Manager (NOTE: An unsuccessful appeal will not excuse payment of the charges or disconnection of services).
