TO AVOID PENALTY:
ALL payments must be received no later than the 4:30 p.m. office closing time on the due date. Any payment received after the 4:30 p.m. closing time is subject to 10% penalty. If the 10th occurs on the weekend or holiday, it must be in the night drop box by 8:00 a.m. the next business day.
The CUT-OFF date is the 20th of each month and is strictly adhered to (if 20th occurs on weekends or certain holidays, next business day disconnection applies), so......
DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE 20TH TO PAY YOUR BILL!
Accounts with delinquent balances remaining on the 20th are subject to a $45.00 service fee at 8:00 a.m. when office opens for business even if interruption of service has not occurred at the precise time. When service disconnection has been rendered, re-connection will occur only after all billing charges have been paid, including the $45.00 service fee.
No service re-connections will be done after 4:00 p.m., but will be continued the following business day.
Not responsible for mail delivery!

A REMINDER TO OUR CUSTOMERS:
Please DO NOT use the cut-off valve inside the meter box housing!
The City of Lewisburg and the Kentucky Division of Plumbing require that each customer have a cut-off valve installed between the meter box and their home. This valve is to be used by the customer in event that the water service needs to be cut off by the customer for any reason. The cut-off valve inside the meter box housing was installed by and is exclusively the property of the City of Lewisburg. This valve is not for customer's use.
The Waterworks does charge the customer for work done to repair these cut-off valves. If you do not have a cut-off valve at this residence other than the one belonging to the Waterworks, please take this opportunity to bring your plumbing up to the required standards.
