ATHENS, Ala. – Athens Utilities announced they are extending the suspension of utility disconnects for customers that can’t pay until May 4.
Originally, the suspension went through April 17, but officials made the extension since Gov. Kay Ivey’s stay-at-home order runs until April 30.
Officials wanted to remind customers they will still be responsible for the full bill amount accrued until payment is made.
Customers are urged to pay what they can on their bills between now and May 4 to help keep their balances low.
