STPUD extends COVID-19 Rate Relief Program

South Lake Tahoe – The South Tahoe Public Utility District Board of Directors extended the COVID-19 Rate Relief Program to assist residents and businesses that are facing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Rate Relief Program offers a 50% credit up to $3,000 for the next quarterly sewer bill for customers in need.

“We’re extending the rate relief program because our community just entered another phase of restrictions, which could cause economic hardship for our customers,” said Randy Vogelgesang, Board President in a press release. Customers can sign-up for the first time or again to receive a second credit. This program compliments measures the board has already adopted to help customers since the pandemic began.

Residential sewer customers whose primary residence is in the District’s service area, business sewer customers, and multi-family residential sewer customers that have been negatively affected by COVID-19 are eligible to sign-up. Applications will be received through Dec. 31.
