In an effort to protect sensitive customer information from predatory practices, the legislature passed H.B. 872, which applies to information held by a municipally owned utility (MOU) that provides water, wastewater, sewer, gas, garbage, electricity, or drainage service.
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, an MOU may NOT disclose customer information (including the customer’s address) under the Public Information Act (PIA) UNLESS the customer elects to make the information public or certain exceptions apply. Also excluded from public disclosure is information: (1) that reveals whether an account is delinquent or eligible for disconnection; and (2) collected as part of an advanced metering system.
