VERBATIM: Officials say they have suspended all utility late fees and utility shut-offs due to non-payment until further notice. Assistance is available with developing payment arrangements and for those using a credit card to pay the bill while the fee can’t be waived the city will apply a credit equal to the credit card fee to their utility account.
