Hillsboro residents urged to work out utility bill agreements

Staff writer

The City of Hillsboro is extending its utility shutoff date in anticipation of the expiration of the governor’s executive order prohibiting shutting off utility customers for non-payment of their utility bills until June 15.

Customers delinquent on their utility bill are urged to contact Mona Hein at Hillsboro City Hall to work out a payment plan.

Customers who don’t contact city hall and have not paid their utility bill by June 15 will have their utilities shut off.

“It is important to remember customers are responsible for paying their utility bill,” city administrator Larry Paine said. “We know the federal stimulus bills passed by congress and the unemployment benefits are helping customer’s financial situation. We know that some, not all, who have lost their jobs earn more with the stimulus programs. Let us work with those customers so their balances do not become so burdensome.”
