BETHEL (AP) -- Bethel residents can no longer call the city for extra water delivery if they run out.
The Bethel City Council unanimously passed an ordinance requiring residents to send signed notices to the city for extra water delivery.
Previously, many customers just called to get extra water and sewer services, said Rebecca Clark, customer service representative for the utilities department of Bethel Public Works.
''Hundreds of people did it,'' Clark said. ''Sometimes they'd call and leave a message on the machine.''
Clark said obtaining signed forms gives the city documentation in case there is a dispute about requested services.
In a related matter, there was no objection against an amendment prohibiting city utility bills from being disputed 90 days past their due dates.
