MANASSAS, Va. – Colder weather has set in and that means people are turning up their thermostats and seeing higher utility bills. The City of Manassas’ Operation Round Up is in full force, where customers that authorize the City of Manassas to “round up” their monthly electric bill to the next higher dollar.
If the bill is $73.80, it is rounded up to $74 and the extra 20 cents is contributed to the Operation Round Up® fund. Single donations from customers are also accepted, simply by adding the additional dollars to their payment with a notice that the overpayment is for Operation Round Up.
