CVEC members Donald and Kathy Smith of Shawnee were winners of the grand prize at the cooperative’s 72nd annual meeting in Sep- tember. This year’s prize was a stainless steel refrigerator.

Each year at this time, the rules governing nonpayment disconnects

change to the “winter regulations.” The changes are in effect until April 15 of the following year. The Oklahoma Corporation Commission has established specific

rules governing how CVEC and other utilities deal with discontinuance of service in summer and winter. Of course no one likes to have their electricity disconnected, especially during foul weather, but CVEC has to follow OCC rules on nonpayment disconnects. Since the cooperative disconnects only as a last resort, if payment

of your electric bill becomes a problem, please contact us. We want to work with you to find a positive solution. The following is a brief overview of the OCC rules as they affect CVEC members. Nov. 15- April 15 Cut-Offs CVEC bills are mailed on the 5th, 15th and 25th of each month.

Each member has 20 days from the date of the bill is mailed to make payment. If a member is unable to make a full payment, it is impor- tant that he or she contact the customer service department to make payment arrangements. Your bill statement will serve as a “disconnect notice” if you have a past due balance. Approximately five days before the due date of the disconnect

reminder, a 48-hour notice is mailed. If by the 48-hour due date no payment is received or arrangements made, the account will be discon- nected without further notice. The following payment arrangement options are available if paying

your electric bill becomes a problem. 1) Deferred Payment Plan: The plan is calculated within the OCC

regulations. 2) Life Threatening Plan: This plan is limited to the members who

are or have family members residing in the home who rely on life-sav- ing equipment such as oxygen equipment. These members must pro- vide appropriate documentation for verification that such circumstances exist within the residence. CVEC personnel will be required to make a visual inspection of the equipment. 1002153602 (3) Public Service Agencies: A list of public service agencies is

available for eligible members. The Department of Human Services (DHS) can provide assistance to eligible persons. A list of the various county DHS offices can be rovided by the cooperative. The American Indian tribes and other agencies also have programs to assist members. If a payment is not received and no contact has been made with our

office, the cooperative will make a visit to collect the amount due or disconnect. For each trip required to collect back payment, a $25 ser- vice fee will be charged. If the service is actually disconnected, a $25 reconnect fee and deposit, if needed, will be applied. The reconnect must be requested Monday through Friday from 8

a.m. to 4 p.m. Calls for service to be reconnected after working hours will be charged $50, plus the $25 for any previous collection visits made for notification or cutoff of the service. Members wishing to pay by check at the time of the disconnect, who have a history of dishon- ored checks, can expect CVEC to contact the member's bank to verify sufficient funds before reconnecting the service. Once disconnect is made the member will be required to pay all fees and charges before service is reconnected. A member seeking additional information can contact CVEC’s

customer service department at 382-3680, 273-4680, toll free (877) 382-3680 or (918) 689-3232. The OCC’s complaint, investigation and mediation department also may provide assistance at 521-2331 or 1 (800) 522-8154.

CVEC offices will be closed Thursday, November 24 in observance of Thanks- giving. The office will reopen for normal business hours Friday, November 25.
