If you read the City's web site for the requirements you will find that it is unlikely anyone will qualify for payment of their utility bills. The bill must have been past due as of 9/30/21 and still be unpaid. It is unlikely anyone with a past due bill that old will no longer be a customer of the utility as they do not continue service to customers with bills for year old services. Anyone with a past due bill at 9/30/21 would have been required to pay it before continuing to receive service for a year without paying I assume. An applicant also has to show tax returns or payroll information to document that they meet the income need test. How many will want to submit that information to get the City to pay their 9/30/21 utility bill if it is still unpaid. The article sounds like the City will pay any past due utility bills from October 1, 2021 to now which is not what the City says it will do.
