Pursuant to California Public Utility Code Section 10009.6, the decision of the City to require a new residential applicant to deposit a sum of money with the City prior to establishing an account and furnishing service shall be based solely upon the creditworthiness of the applicant as determined by the City.

The deposit will be equal to the charges for services likely to be incurred during a period of three (3) months or two (2) billing periods, whichever is greater. This estimate shall be established by the Finance Officer or his/her designee based upon the size of the service, the nature of the use of the property and the experience with similar uses in the City. Failure to make the deposit will warrant the discontinuation or denial of service.
