Hi Michele – It’s Penny from NEMRC –
I am copying information that Craig, our IT guy, tells me about your question – maybe it will give you a little help…
One alternative is called 'paperless'. The record lives on the computer and is backed up. Unless there is an administrative or legal obligation for a second paper copy, there is no need for printed paper.
There may be custom form implications in their change in disconnect notices, and this should be investigated by NEMRC.
I suppose it is possible to purchase perforated single sheets down the middle, so that 2 copies could be printed on one page, torn in half, and one half kept.
A network copier can print very inexpensively, perhaps $.01/page, and 2 copies printed in this manner may not be objectionable.
Maybe this information is a little bit of help to you? Let us know if we can help you forward from here…thanks! Penny, NEMRC
We currently use a dot matrix printer to print disconnect notices for water and waste water, whereby we have the pink original to be mailed and a duplicate copy for our records. Would like to switch over to printing these on a laser jet printer. Looking to see what others are doing as we would like to avoid printing a second set on the laser printer for our records.
