j. Applications processing fee in the amount of ten dollars ($10.00).

B. Subsequent Applications. A current customer of the City of Ashland may connect utility service at a new location by telephone, if their account is current and their credit history shows no more than one (1) delinquency.
C. The application is merely a request for service and does not in itself bind the City to serve except under reasonable conditions, nor does it bind the customer to take service; but if the service is connected, the customer will be required to pay monthly minimum charges according to the applicable rate.
D. No application for electric, water and/or sewer service shall be accepted, or no new service shall be furnished to any person, firm or corporation who has any bill, fee or charge which has been due to the City for a period of thirty (30) days or more, until such bill, fee or charge has been paid in full.
