Rock Hill Utilities


THE CODE BELOW IS USED TO COLLECT FROM SOMEONE FOR A BILL INCURRED IF THEY ROOMED WITH SOMEONE ELSE WHO DID NOT PAY A BILL. FOR EXAMPLE YOU AND YOUR ROOMMATE ARE NOT GETTING ALONG. YOUR ROOMMATE COULD ALSO BE YOUR PARENTS IF YOU ARE MOVING OUT ON YOUR ON. YOU MOVE OUT AND RENT SOMETHING ELSE. WHEN YOU GET TO THE ROCK HILL UTILITY DEPARTMENT THEY WILL NOT CUT ON THE POWER FOR YOU IF YOUR OLD ROOMMATE IS PAST DUE OR HAS NOT PAID. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHOSE NAME THE POWER WAS IN. IF YOU LET SOMEONE MOVE IN WITH YOU THE CITY USES THIS CODE TO COLLECT A BILL FROM YOU THAT THE PERSON YOU LET MOVE IN WITH YOU MAY HAVE LEFT OWING FROM A DIFFERENT LOCATION. SO YOUR FRIEND WHO IS DOWN ON HIS LUCK LOST HIS JOB AND APARTMENT, AND YOU FEEL SORRY FOR HIM AND LET HIM TAKE THE SPARE BEDROOM. IF HE OWES THE CITY MONEY AND THEY FIND OUT, THEY WILL ADD HIS BILL TO YOURS. HOWEVER, THEY WILL GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO KICK THE POOR GUY OUT IN THE STREET TO AVOID ASSUMING HIS DEBT. IF YOU OWE A UTILITY BILL OR YOUR OLD ROOMMATE OWES A UTILITY BILL AND YOUR LANDLORD WANTS TO INCLUDE THE POWER WITH THE RENTS, THE CITY WILL NOT ALLOW THIS.
