$262K available to households behind on water, sewer bills
QUINCY — Low-income families struggling to keep up with water and sewer bills may be eligible for grant assistance from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
On Monday, the Quincy City Council approved a vendor agreement between the city and the Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials to assist households with the payment of their water and sewer bills.
Becky Pruden, community services director for Two Rivers Regional Council, said about $262,000 is available for residents of Adams, Brown, Pike and Schuyler counties over the next two years.
“It doesn’t matter what water district they’re with in those four counties,” Pruden said. “We’ll be able to assist them.”
