(2) Computation of base kwh for residential rate A-E.

(a) Existing subscribers or residential units. The City Clerk-Treasurer will, on written application of the owner or occupant of any all-electric mobile home or other qualified residential unit, compute the base kwh, to be applied under residential rate A-E, for such all electric mobile home or other qualified residential unit by determining average monthly kwh used therein for the twelve-month period ending with the billing period prior to the application, rounded to the nearest 100 kwh. Such average kwh consumption shall constitute the base kwh for that all-electric mobile home or other residential unit, provided however, that such base kwh shall not be less than 900 kwh or more than 1,500 kwh, per meter reading period.

(b) New home construction.

(Ord. 79-188, passed 11-5-79; Am. Ord. 83-226, passed 1-31-83; Am. Ord. 83-227, passed 2-7-83)


§ 50.05 DELINQUENT PAYMENT.

(A) Should any subscriber fail to pay the billing rendered on or about the first day of the month, by the fifteenth (15th) day of that month, the City Clerk/Treasurer or one of his or her deputies or assistants shall notify such subscriber of his or her delinquency, and a late payment penalty of ten percent (10%) of such delinquency shall be assessed unless good cause be shown for such delinquency. If payment in full has not been made by the twentieth (20th) day of such month, the City Clerk/Treasurer, unless satisfactory arrangements have been made for payment otherwise, by the subscriber’s or owner’s address, or by hand delivery by the utility department or police department with receipt requested or with a door hanger notice hung in a conspicuous place and upon the front door of the billing address, each such delinquent subscriber and if such subscriber be a lessee of the improvements served, the owner of such property, of the fact of such delinquency, the total amount due for electrical energy and further notifying such delinquent subscriber and the owner of such property that if payment in full is not made by the thirtieth (30th) day of that month the electrical service to such delinquent meter will be disconnected as of the first day of the following month.

(B) Any person, firm, or corporation which believes it has just reason why such delinquency should not be paid shall on or before the twentieth (20th) day of the month in which such delinquent bill was rendered, file a written statement with the City Clerk/Treasurer setting out the basis of the protest of such charge or the reason why such charge should not be collected by the city, or, such person may file an action in the appropriate court of Grant County, on or before the twentieth (20th) day of the month in which such delinquent bill was rendered, to enjoin the city from collecting the sum or terminating such service.

(E) The City Clerk/Treasurer, on written application therefor, for such reasons as to him may appear just and satisfactory, may waive the ten percent (10%) late payment penalty on any bill.

(F) On written application of any subscriber a deferment of all or part of any bill on such terms and conditions as to the City Clerk/Treasurer may appear just and equitable considering the financial resource of such subscriber, other expenses of such subscriber, and all other matters as may be called to his attention, provided, that such deferment of payment shall provide that the billing in question and all future bills shall be paid within a period of not more than six (6) months and it shall be reduced to writing and signed by the subscriber and the City Clerk/Treasurer and a copy delivered to the subscriber and a copy retained by the City Clerk/Treasurer.

(H) Should such subscriber or any one on his or her behalf fail to comply with such deferred payment agreement and cause all other delinquencies to be paid within such ten (10) day period, the electrical service to such premises shall be disconnected on the eleventh (11th) day after the posting of such notice.

(I) Any subscriber who believes he or she has been aggrieved by the action of the City Clerk/Treasurer in refusing to grant a deferment of payment or that the terms of such deferment of payment are unjust or inequitable may appeal from the decision of such City Clerk/Treasurer to the City Council.

(J) Such appeal and any protest of payment as provided in division

(B) hereof shall be heard at the next regular meeting of the City Council at which time such aggrieved subscriber may present such evidence or statement as may be pertinent to the issue involved and the City Clerk/Treasurer may likewise present such evidence or statement as is pertinent to the issue.

(K) The City Council on hearing all evidence and statements shall by majority vote of the members present adopt a resolution resolving such controversy, and the terms, and conditions of such determination including the amounts and dates of any payment to be made including the date of termination of service on the failure, if any, of the subscriber to comply with the terms adopted by the City Council, provided that any aggrieved subscriber shall be given a period of five days after the adoption of the resolution in which to enjoin the enforcement of such resolution in a court of competent jurisdiction prior to the termination of such service.

§ 50.08 REAR YARD SERVICE.

Electric service with an extra pole to the rear of the house is available, subject to the following charges:

§ 50.09 PURCHASED POWER ADJUSTMENT.

(A) The city hereby establishes a purchased power adjustment of the charges for the sale of electrical energy sold by the city to customers both within and outside the city limits of the city.

(B) The city hereby establishes the following procedure for the purchased power adjustment of charges for electrical energy sold by the city to customers both within and outside the city limits of the city.

(C) In addition to the charges for electrical energy established in §§ 50.01 and 50.02, the rates charged for all energy (all kwh) will be increased or decreased by a purchased power adjustment (PPA). This PPA will be shown on the utility bill and will be solely related to the recovery of actual purchased power costs. The PPA will be determined on a monthly basis by comparing actual purchased power costs to the annual power supply forecast cost from the city’s wholesale power supplier and budget for variations in the wholesale power market.

(D) The formula for determining the PPA is as follows: PPA (current period) = Actual purchased power cost - Annual power supply forecast cost from the city’s wholesale power supplier - budget variations in the wholesale power market. The annual power supply forecast cost used to calculate the PPA will be periodically updated as necessary to reflect changes in the forecast from the city’s wholesale power supplier. Also, the budget for variations in the wholesale power market will be periodically updated as necessary to reflect actual or anticipated variations in wholesale power markets to minimize monthly PPA costs to city retail customers to the extent practical.

(E) For the purposes of this section the following definitions shall apply unless the context clearly indicates or requires a different meaning.
“kwh.” Total kwh purchased by the city during the previous period.
“LOSSES.” Distribution losses, in percentage points, is defined as [(Purchases - Sales)/Purchases].
“PPA (CURRENT PERIOD).” This is the purchased power adjustment to the base electrical energy charge for each period.
“PP COSTS.” This is the total cost of purchased power incurred by the city during the previous period, including Cinergy and MISO transmission charges.
