The notice will be on the utility bill and the date of disconnect will be located on the bill. If an account is disconnected, the entire balance plus a $25.00 disconnect fee has to be paid BEFORE service will be reconnected. Contact City Hall if you have any questions about the disconnect schedule and/or the disconnect list.
