La PORTE — The city utility office is cracking down on La Porte residents who are using bounced checks to get their water service restored.

On Wednesday, the La Porte Board of Public Works and Safety approved a request from Clerk-Treasurer Courtney Parthun to allow officials to immediately disconnect water service should a resident make a payment on a delinquent account with a non-sufficient funds check.
