PHILIPSBURG – At Thursday’s NV GEBEs press conference, the company disclosed that some preliminary discussions have taken place with respect to some form of relief or grace period for its customers.
Further lengthy discussions need to take place before any decision is taken. The company has to look at current damages to its facilities as well as grid; lost customers due to damaged homes; as well as monthly operational costs and future investment needs, before any form of relief could be decided upon.
NV GEBE’s Management Team stated that its Simpson Bay Branch Office would open next week allowing customers to come in and make their monthly bill payments. The customer service section will also be open for other services that the company provides.
Due to the damage at its Philipsburg Office, the company is looking for another location in order to provide services to customers.
