After the 15th of the month, a 5% penalty is applied and a delinquent billing (on a red postcard) is mailed and includes a disconnect date. If a payment or payment is not made PRIOR to the disconnect date, SERVICE WILL BE SHUT OFF until such time as a payment or payment arrangement is made. There is a $50.00 reconnect fee to re-establish service.

Every effort will be made to work with individuals and their circumstances, but if a payment arrangement is not made prior to the disconnect date, service will be discontinued and the $50.00 reconnect fee assessed to the account. *****
