pay and allow Customer five (5) business days from the day of

such notice to pay Gulf South. Should Customer continue to fail

to pay Gulf South the amount due, Gulf South may terminate

service to Customer by providing at least thirty (30) days

written notice to the Customer and the Commission of its intent

to terminate any service agreement(s). Such notice may be

provided contemporaneously with the initial notice of the need

statement or invoice furnished, Customer shall pay the undisputed

faith endeavor to resolve the dispute expeditiously. To the

extent Customer fails to pay any undisputed portion of the

statement of invoice, the remedies available under Section 18.5

shall apply.
