SEQUIM — The City of Sequim will work with utility customers whose finances are strained by COVID-19 restrictions and will not charge delinquency fees or disconnecting services during the crisis.
The city announced Friday that it will work with customers to make payment arrangements for the water and sewer utilities in recognition of the hardships inflicted on many by the restrictions put in place to slow the spread of COVID-19.
City staff have developed a temporary Utility Relief Discount Program specifically for those affected by COVID-19.
The program is available to single-family residents and small businesses within the Sequim city limits.
The application is available on the city website at www.sequimwa.gov, where a list of several resources for those hurt by COVID-19 restrictions are listed.
This program may require adjustments if COVID-19 economic impacts continue to remain dire or if they improve, officials said in a press release.
