Reconnection Fees & Policy:
If your utilities have been disconnected because of non-payment of a past due bill, the past due balance must be paid in full before your services can be restored. Payments can be made to a cashier at any one of five MLGW community business offices during normal business hours.
MLGW no longer guarantees same day reconnection service (regardless of the time payment is received). Upon receiving payment, services may not be restored until the next business day.
- If your services are disconnected, a $45 reconnection fee will be billed after services are restored. An additional deposit may also be required.
