 WCMES to resume cutoffs for non-pay April 1; late fees reinstated May 1

After discontinuing disconnects and late fees last March due to the economic impacts caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Weakley County Municipal Electric System will resume cutoffs for non-pay on April 1 and late fees will be reinstated on May 1.

WCMES has initiated new procedures to help customers who have fallen behind with electric payments.

Customers who are unable to pay their full Past-Due Amounts must contact the WCMES office by March 26 to make payment arrangements.

All customers will be expected to pay current bills due in April in order to avoid disconnection.

Past-Due Amounts may be spread over time and payable in installments without interest or late penalties.

However, in order to qualify, customers must call the office prior to March 26 to make specific arrangements.
