All residential customers must establish credit prior to the connection of utility service. The City Of Concord runs a utility credit check at the time of application to determine customer identity as well as check for previously charged off utility accounts. Once established, disconnection for non-payment, returned checks, or bankruptcy will subject customer to deposit schedule for reconnection of service. Utility deposits may be returned upon request, without interest, following 12 consecutive months of on time payments. A letter of good credit may also be accepted and a deposit will be waived upon approval by the City.
