The late notice is threatening. Why does it state my services will be terminated?

The notice states that if full payment or a payment arrangement is not made by 5:00 p.m. before the due date, the services will be terminated. Making a payment arrangement is the best way to ensure your services will not be interrupted if you need more time to make your payment. The wording is not meant to be threatening, but it is stating what will happen if payment or a payment arrangement is not made before the due date. Before any action can be taken, that action must be stated. Per City Ordinance, all bills are due and payable monthly.
