      (2)   Each applicant for residential service must complete a written application for service, including:
         (a)   The location where service is to be provided (service address);
         (b)   The names of all adults who will be living full time at this address;

      (5)   If a representative of an applicant, acting under a power of attorney, applies for service in the applicant's name, proof of the power of attorney must be provided to the village. The village reserves the right to verify any and all information provided by the applicant prior to initiating service.
      (6)   Any applicant who has failed to pay for previous utility services from village will be required to pay all past due amounts and a service deposit before service will be initiated. If service is initiated and subsequently it is determined that a customer has a prior past due balance, the prior past due balance will be due immediately or current services will be subject to disconnection.
