City Water & Light offers a program for landlords called Read and Leave On status. If the landlords have addresses that they do not want disconnected when tenants give CWL disconnect orders, the services would be left on and automatically transferred into the landlord's name. The only time a "Read and Leave On" address would not be left on for the landlord is when the address needs to be disconnected for non-payment of the bill by the current tenant. If the tenant does not pay all charges to have service turned back on in their name, a connect order would need to be requested by the landlord to have the service restored. The normal procedure of a minimum notice of one workday would be required. A request of an immediate service order would require a service charge to be paid.
If the address is set up for the "Read and Leave On status, and the address is still in the landlords name, the landlord may call to check to see if the tenant has had the address placed in his/her name. If the tenant has not, at the landlords request we will disconnect the address with a minimum notice of one workday.
