On May 2, 2022, the City will begin disconnection processes for delinquent utility charges.
Each customer that is delinquent more than $50 will receive an automated call out notification to advise of a scheduled disconnection date. If payment or arrangements are not made, a service person will attempt in good faith to reach a person at the service location to inform them that termination is imminent and explain that assistance is available. The service person will leave a notification on the door if they are unable to make contact at the residence. There is a $10 charge for the delinquent notification and will only be charged once per account per month of notification. If delinquent balances are not paid or if payment arrangements are not made, a service person will visit the service location on the scheduled disconnection date to disconnect services. For questions regarding the delinquent process, please refer to Ashland Municipal Code 14.02
