Staff recommends approval of the agreement with Online Utility Exchange for credit checks on new residential utility customers for $90.00 per month plus the search fee of $2.70 per search.
The City Commission has authorized staff to allow new residential utility customers to consent to a telephone credit check at the applicant’s expense. Currently, staff allows the new residential utility customer to provide the city with a letter of good standing from another utility company or pay the required deposit amount. This new procedure will allow an additional option for our new residential utility customers.
1. Approve the agreement with Online Utility Exchange; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
