(AAC R14-2-409.C)

All utility bills are due and payable when rendered.  For purpose of this rule, the date a bill is rendered may be evidenced by the Postmark date.  Failure to receive bills, which have been placed in the U.S. Mail, shall not prevent such bills from becoming delinquent.  Water bills not paid by the "Past Due Date" will be considered delinquent.


Meter deposits shall be repaid by the utility by an annual credit of 10% of the amount received.  Said credit is to be applied on the water bill in November of each year, until fully paid.  Credit will commence the month of November for all meter deposits received during the preceding calendar year.


Residential security deposits shall be refunded after 12 consecutive months of service without being delinquent.  The utility may review the customer's usage after service has been connected and adjust the deposit amount based on the customer's actual usage.  A security deposit may be re-established if the customer becomes delinquent two or more times within a 12 month consecutive month period.
