Disconnect Notices to Resume on July 29
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Addison suspended assessing late fees and performing disconnections for unpaid utility bills. As mentioned in the July 9 newsletter, Addison will resume mailing out disconnect notices and collecting late fees soon. Here is additional information on the timing of these changes:
On July 29, the Addison Utility Billing Department will resume mailing out disconnect notices for unpaid balances. Customers who receive these notices will need to settle unpaid balances by August 12 to avoid having service disconnection on August 13. Late fees for July invoices not received by the August 12 due date will be assessed beginning August 16. If you have a balance or have any questions regarding your utility account, please contact the Utility Billing Department at 972-450-7081 to review your account information with a representative as soon as possible.

Utility Disclosure Form - HB 872
In an effort to protect sensitive customer information from predatory practices, the legislature passed H.B. 872. H.B. 872 applies to information held by a municipally owned utility (MOU) that provides water, wastewater, sewer, gas, garbage, electricity, or drainage service.
Effective immediately, Addison may not disclose customer information (including the customer’s address) under the Public Information Act (PIA) unless the customer elects to make the information public or certain exceptions apply. Also excluded from public disclosure is information: (1) that reveals whether an account is delinquent or eligible for disconnection; and (2) collected as part of an advanced metering system.
H.B. 872 essentially reverses the prior law’s requirements. Before H.B. 872, utility customers had to fill out a form to request their information remain confidential. Failure to do so made the customer’s information public. Now, a customer’s information is protected unless the customer opts to make it public.
