I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ***, and find that this resolution is an indication that they are aware of poor time from for callsIt is not acceptable to call someone back during their working hrsso the callback feature is only useful to someone who is not working/busyOutside business hrs need to be available or call wait time will need to be significantly decreasedMost people do not want to take time off work in order to resolve an issue that should not exist in the first placeSRP, Cox, Mesa gas, ETCdo not require password changesThere is no reason for this beyond using legacy softwareCompany understands it has an issue and sounds like they are trying to resolve it but are VERY slow
*** ***

There is no record of Mr*** contacting Johnson Utilities regaurding concerns of high usage at his residenceMr*** can contact Johnson Utilities and request a Technician come to the residence to verify the read, look for visible leaks, and see if the meter is spinning when no water is
running at the propertyMr*** can also request a data log, a data log will report the usage at the residence per hour in order to identify when the water is being usedMr*** can also request a meter test for accuracy

The billing period for Mr***’s residence ends on or around the 25th of each monthAfter the billing period end date the billing is generated then the statements are createdAfter the statements are created a file is sent to a third party to mail bills as well as send
email notifications to customers that have signed up for e-bill (email notification of new bills)It is Johnson Utilities goal to have all billing mailed and/or emailed on or before the first of each month for the billing cycle that Mr***’s account is in
Johnson Utilities third party vendor has stated that April billing emails for Mr***s billing cycle were sent on 4/29/with a due date of 5/15/Mr*** had a credit balance on the April billing therefor no payment was dueIn regards to the late fee, Johnson Utilities bills are due on the 15th of each month and late fees CAN be applied as early as the 16th of each monthJohnson Utilities typically will not charge a late fee for to days after the due date

The call back system calls back hours laterThe customer might not be available when the systems calls back.The whole purpose of trying to call in and pay the bill is because customers might not have access to the other payment options.If the customer is unable to pay their bill by phone or any other payment method, it could go past the due date and have to pay late fees because Johnson Utilities so called upgraded phone system is not reliable

Johnson Utilities has billing cycles:
Cycle = Billing date of the 25th, bills are updated on the 25th, then forms are created, reports ran, and a file is extracted to the third party vendorBills are mailed out on or before the 1st. Bills are due on the
Cycle = Billing date is the 5th, bills are updated on the 5th, then forms are created, reports ran, and a file is extracted to the third party vendorBills are mailed out on or before the 10thBills are due on the 25th
Mr*** has accounts with Johnson Utilities, the accounts are as follows:
1. *** * ***, this is on Billing Cycle This account has had a total of bills producedThe first bills were being mailed to the incorrect billing address, billings produced late fees however all late fees have been waived and the billing address has been correctedThe 3rd bill was produced on 7/25/ad has the correct mailing addressThe past due amount is $and the total amount (to include current amount) is $
2. *** ***, this is on Billing Cycle 1. This account has only had one bill, and it is going to the correct billing addressThe total due is $and is current
3. *** * *** *** is on Billing Cycle This account has been open since and is being mailed to the correct mailing addressA total of billing cycles have produced late fees and have been waived, leaving a total of $in late fees for this account in total
Johnson Utilities offers a service called E-bill, E-bill will send your bill to your email address the same day, or next day, the bill is sent to the third party vendorThis program can elevate any delay that the USPS may produceMr*** has signed up in the past for this service however it does not appear that he is currently enrolled
A Johnson Utility Customer Service Supervisor contacted Mr*** on 7/25/and reviewed all accounts, corrected the account that had the incorrect billing address, and answered all the questions Mr*** had regarding billing

Below is Johnson Utilities to the customer rebuttal:Per the notes in the Johnson Utilities software on 6/10/at 8:the past due payment was made as well as a reconnection fee of $and it is noted that customer was advised of the hour time frameThis has been Johnson Utilities practice for many yearsAs stated previously Johnson Utilities will have technician stay late in an effort to have water that was disconnected for non-payment turned on the same day however other emergencies (force main or water line breaks) can cause an unexpected delay of this process which is why the Johnson Utilities Customer Service Department provides a time frame of hours

This account had usage up until 9/16/On 10/17/monthly reads came back showing zero usageThere was no record of a call from customer to close this accountOur office force closed the account on 10/29/Customer received a bill dated 10/31/due on 11/15/with
billing period of 9/30/through 10/31/Another bill was created for their final bill dating 11/30/due on 12/15/with billing period of 10/31/through 11/30/This final bill had all credits from the deposits being refunded back due to the account being closedThe last payment that we received on this account was on 7/16/We have since then tried to contact customer with the number that we have on file but the call just rings busy

After speaking with Jen at Johnson utilities she stated that my deposit which was required before starting service was placed for our first billNo where in the billing history is that representedYes, services have been disconnected multiple times as no invoices where being receivedPer Jen, that's the posts office fault, for which I disagree as all other statements arrive in a timely mannerI am ok with paying a deposit as long as it is represented in our billing historyYet, the issue of the disrespect and lack for professionalism from a manager at Johnson utilities, still stands
