FPUA Board Extends Deadline for Disconnects

Fort Pierce, FL, July 23, 2020 – At the July 21, 2020, meeting, the Fort Pierce Utilities Authority (FPUA) Board voted to extend the suspension of disconnects for non-payment until September 5th, 2020. This extension will allow FPUA customers additional time to set up payment plans or seek assistance to avoid interruption of their utility service. “We agree with the Board’s decision to give customers additional time to bring their accounts current, take advantage of FPUA payment plans, or seek funding assistance,” said John Tompeck, Director of Utilities. “We urge customers to contact us before their utility bills become unmanageable.”
