    Any water or sewer facility which is owned or operated by a public or private utility, city, incorporated town, municipal corporation or public service district shall give every customer a thirty-day grace period for payment of the customer’s water and sewer bill before charging a late fee.




    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to require water and sewer facilities to give every customer a thirty-day grace period for payment of their bill before instituting a late fee.
