Reconnects are scheduled only after the consumer has paid the bill in full, made the minimum payment required, and paid the reconnect fee. In addition, the deposit requirement is subject to adjustment any time a disconnect for non-payment (including bad checks) occurs. Consumers must pay the amount due plus the amount of the adjusted deposit.
A payment made with a bad check will treated the same as a non-payment. A handling fee of $35 will be charged and is payable only by cash or money order on all returned checks. After 2 checks have been returned, the customer will be required to make all utility payments by cash, money order, or cashier's check.
