The auditor or supervisor at the customer service office will review the customer's utility payment history and put together the letter of credit which states whether or not there have been late payments within the last year or other activities relating to delinquency, if they have not made on time payments.

A letter of credit may be requested by the account holder on record. Additionally third party on the account is also eligible to request a letter of credit.
