Why have you closed so many local offices? ANSWER: Closing some of our smaller business offices is just another way Monongahela has had to reduce operating costs--in an effort to keep your electric bill as low as possible in these times of inflation. We have made many other cuts as well, but many are not as visible to our customers as our office closings: How To Pay Your Bills For customers wishing to pay electric bills in person, Authorized Collection Agencies, such as banks and local businesses, have been established to accept your bill pay- ments and turn them over to us. Even easier, simply mall your payments to: Monongahela Power Company, P. O. Box 1650, Fairmont, West Virginia 26554. Also, toll,free telephone numbers have been established in most areas formerly served by a local office, We have found that the majority of customer service business, including bill inquiries and requests for new connections, can be handled by telephone, We Still Have 19 Local Offices Still scattered throughout our service area are 19 business offices where you are always welcome to contact us in person about any electric problem or need. We wish" we could have an office in every town we serve, to put us closer to you and you to us. But nowadays that's just wishful" thinking. We must do everything possible to minimize increases in our costs and your electric rates. Monongahela Power Pert of the Allegheny Power System 977
