Billing Procedures and Policies
Elk River Municipal Utilities will send a delinquency notice to the customer after the due date has expired and when full payment
has not been received. The notice will state that the bill is past due and services may be disconnected, as specified on the
notice. If the bill is not paid or our office is not contacted to have satisfactory arrangements made, no further notice may be
given. We may also hang a tag at the residence or place of business notifying you of possible disconnect due to nonpayment. There
is a $20 handling charge if we have to hang this tag and it will be billed directly to your account.
There is a $50.00 disconnection/trip charge within the normal hours of 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Monday - Friday. No reconnects
will be done after 3:30 p.m.* For residential, commercial or industrial customers who are disconnected for nonpayment,
a 2 month estimated utility bill deposit will be required before reconnection.
*For services that have been disconnected for nonpayment, payment of cash, money order, or credit card must be received in our office between the hours of 8:00am and 3:00pm before we will reconnect the service. Checks will not be accepted as a form of payment. No payments will be accepted in the field. No reconnections will be done after 3:30pm.
