Disconnection of Services / Final Utility Read
If services are terminated, the total remaining balance and the reconnect fee on the account must be paid in full before services are restored.
Customers who have their services terminated two (2) times in (12) twelve consecutive months will have their account placed on a month-by-month basis, meaning the bill must be paid in full each month for 12 consecutive months.  Accounts not paid by the 10th will receive a termination notice with payment due no later than the 20th of the month or the next business day following the 20th of the month or services will be shut off. The account will remain in the month-by-month status until it is paid on time for 12 consecutive months.

Only cash or money order will be accepted as payment for accounts on the month-by-month status.

Rental Property owners will be sent a copy of termination notices.

Non-Sufficient Fund Fees

No two-party checks will be accepted.
No post dated checks will be accepted.
If two NSF checks are written in 12 consecutive months, the bill will need to be paid by CASH or MONEY ORDER.

Please note: Customers who fail to sign out when moving out will continue to be responsible for all utilities. Final read paperwork is located in the utilities’ office in Town Hall, and must be signed.
