Additional comments/instructions:




  1. The Applicant acknowledges that utility accounts and deposits are not transferable between individuals and that the utility deposit will only be refunded in the name on the account. Utility deposits will be refunded upon disconnection of service and then only after the final bill has been applied.
  2. The Applicant acknowledges that the meters are the property of the City and that they may be turned on or off only as authorized by the City.
  3. The City has the right of access to meters whenever necessary. Failure to provide permanent access to meters may result in disconnection of service.
  4. I agree that BTU may hold me responsible for the past unpaid utility bills of any person that I allow to live with me or to occupy any building that has utility service in my name. I authorize BTU to transfer the balances of such unpaid utility bills to my account and to disconnect my utilities if those balances are not paid in full.
  5. Any unauthorized connection or disconnection of a meter is illegal and will result in the immediate termination of service and will be presumed to be the act or fault of the applicant.
  6. If at any time there is failure to pay when due any charge for service or repair, the City may discontinue service to any and all meters in the name of the Applicant until arrears and all appropriate fees are paid.
  7. The City is not responsible for loss resulting from interrupted service.
  8. The Applicant also agrees to abide by and consider as part of this contract any ordinance, rules and regulations the City adopts concerning utility service, Municipal and Rural.
