Operations Update

The next cut-off date for accounts with a past due balance is Tuesday, November 10th at 4:00 pm.

If you have a past due account balance and payment is not received prior to 4:00 pm on Tuesday, November 10th, service will be placed in cut-off status.  Once the account is placed in cut-off status, you will be required to pay your balance in full plus a $50 cut-off fee.  You may also be required to increase the deposit on your account per our Residential Deposit Policy.  We recommend payment prior to Tuesday, November 4th at 4:00 pm to avoid the inconvenience, fees, and service interruption associated with cut-off.
