Water Stock Auctions
Occasionally, SAWCo is unable to collect the unpaid bills of its shareholders with no physical address in SAWCo's water service area known as dormant shareholders. After all efforts to contact these shareholder(s) to have the unpaid bill brought current has failed, SAWCo will hold a sealed bid stock auction to recover the unpaid debt. Legal fees, advertising fees, unpaid bill amounts, staff work time, etc. are deducted from the winning bid amount. Stock auctions are held when warranted, not necessarily on a regular basis. Notification of upcoming stock auctions are currently sent to all shareholders as well as advertised in the local newspaper.
