Joplin Officials Create Utility Bill Form for Landlords
By Carla Pesono
JOPLIN, MO---Joplin's utility billing division has created a registration form that will allow property owners to be notified of tenants' delinquencies in payment of their monthly wastewater and trash billing. By completing the form and agreement with their tenants, landlords will receive third-party duplicate copies of delinquent and termination notices sent to tenants. Tenants also have to authorize this form with their signature and date. The city is offering this to landlords on a voluntary basis. The form is available on the City's website www.joplinmo.org/landlord.
