BRANSON, Mo. – The City of Branson is renewing contracts for water termination services and the purchase of water usage data.
Utilities Director Mike Ray says the first agreement with Missouri-American Water allows the company to terminate water service to city customers who fail to pay their sewer bills, after being notified of delinquent payments…
Under the agreement, Missouri-American charges the city for termination services, and that cost is passed on to the sewer customer to pay before their water service can be restored.
The second contract with Missouri-American pertains to water usage data, enabling the city to accurately charge for monthly sewer services used by its customers.
Both agreements are slated for second-reading approval next Tuesday, February 23rd.
