For Commercial accounts, we need the following:
You will need to contact our office to find out the required deposit amount for a commercial account. A commercial account deposit is calculated to be "a sum equal to 2 times the average estimated monthly utility service charge for the premises for which utility services are request."
Past accounts from previous customers at the same location, or accounts of a comparable usage factor, maybe used in arriving at the estimated monthly charge for determining the amount of deposit, City Ordinance 46-102(c)(1). The deposit issue must be settled up front. It can not be billed. The deposit may be made in the form of CD pledge to the City or in the form of a non-revocable letter of credit from your bank.
