July 30, 2020
The Town of Stantonsburg is attempting to reach you regarding your outstanding utility bill. Per Governor Cooper’s Executive Orders 124 and 142, the Town was prohibited from disconnecting utilities for non-payment from March 31, 2020 through July 30, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Orders expired July 29, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. The Town of Stantonsburg is required to offer you a payment arrangement to be paid in full within six (6) months ending January 30, 2021 for any account delinquencies that occurred during March 31, 2020 through July 29, 2020. Please contact the office immediately to set up a payment arrangement plan. This arrangement must be signed and notarized at the Town Hall. Should you not execute a payment plan agreement by August 14, 2020, the Town may disconnect your utilities the following day.
Should you fail to make a payment under the payment agreement by the due date, you will be immediately disconnected for non-payment and services will not be reinstated until your account is paid in full. This payment arrangement will be in addition to your regular monthly utility bill.
Please contact our office at 252-238-3608 if you have any questions or concerns regarding this letter or the Executive Orders.
Stantonsburg Utility Billing Department
ATTENTION UTILITY CUSTOMERS
Pursuant to Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order No. 124, the Town of Stantonsburg will temporarily suspend the disconnection of delinquent residential utility accounts until May 31st, 2020. During this time, no new late penalties will be assessed. Customers who are experiencing a hardship due to COVID-19 or whose account is currently past due are encouraged to call the Town to discuss payment arrangement options. We strongly encourage customers to stay up-to-date with your payments as possible to avoid building up a large balance that will be difficult to pay off later when the Order expires. All Town provided services will be billed as normal.
**Note: Governor Roy Cooper has extended this Executive Order for an additional sixty (60) days beyond the original May 31st deadline. Once again, the Town strongly encourages utility customers to stay as up-to-date with payments as possible to avoid building up a large balance that will be difficult to pay off later when the Order expires. Customers are also encouraged to call the Town to discuss payment arrangements prior to the expiration of this Order.**
