CHANGES TO UTILITY BILLING

On March 18, 2014, the Laurinburg City Council amended its utility billing ordinance by extending the utility disconnection date until the 5th of the following month.  Previously, the disconnection date was the 26th of each month which allowed customers two (2) extensions within a twelve month period, leaving the balance to be remitted no later than the 3rd of the month to avoid disconnection.

By extending the disconnect date until the 5th, it is essentially eliminating the need for extensions. Disconnections will begin on the fifth of each month. The policy will not hold or delay a disconnection for any reason other than set forth in the City Code concerning Inclement Weather or death at the residence at which the disconnect is scheduled, which has always been an extended courtesy of the City.

City Manager Charles Nichols stated that "the changes will allow many of our customers the needed time to receive monthly checks to pay their bills and will also improve efficiency in our Consumer Billing Department."  He added that "the City is always striving to improve customer service."
