                              Equal Pay Form
Hot summers and cold winters can cause significant swings in your electric bill and problems for your budget. The Equal Pay program can make rising and falling utility bills a thing of the past. With our Equal Pay program, you won't have to deal with any surprises in your energy costs.

This plan is available upon request. Resident must have no more than two (2) late payments in the last 12 consecutive months of billing. Also, residents must not have issued any bad check or bad debit entries to the City of Monett within the last 12 consecutive months of billing.

The average monthly payment under the plan will be determined by dividing the previous 12 months utility bills by 12. The average monthly payment will be calculated and adjusted each July.

It shall be a requirement that all residential utility customers applying for the equal pay program must be set up for Automatic Withdrawal Program (ACH).
