The City of Moses Lake recently announced available help for some of its customers after Governor Inslee issued a proclamation pertaining to utility ratepayer assistance and the preservation of essential services.

Information Officer Lynne Lynch said the city is offering a two-phase temporary relief program.

Said Lynch, "Customers can apply for a payment arrangement contract, and may be eligible for up to $250 toward delinquent accounts that accrued balances after March 2020."

The delinquent account relief was made possible by a CARES Act grant.

Qualifying applicants must be the property owner of their primary residence, a tenant with a billing waiver signed by the property owner on file with the department, or a tenant that can provide proof that they are responsible for paying the City utility bill for a rental property.

Applications and more information can be found at the city's website.
