What is the Round Up Program?
The Round Up Program is an assistance program that uses funds to help those less fortunate in our community. Customers' monthly utility bills are rounded up to the next highest dollar. The amount rounded up is distributed by the Mayfield-Graves County Need Line and Food Pantry to the many Mayfield/Graves County residents that face economic hardships. The money raised through the Round Up Program will have a positive impact on those residents and our community.
How Does It Affect My Bill?
Customer’s bills are rounded up to the next whole dollar amount. For example, if a customer's utility bill is $78.45, the bill rounds up to $79.00. The extra 55 cents collected goes to the Round Up Program.
Does The Bill Round Up Even If The Cents Amount Is Less Than 50?
Yes. A $149.01 bill and a $149.99 bill both round up to $150.00. Your average round up amount will be about 50 cents per month, and a total of $6 a year.
