Proposed WA Program Will Reduce Disabled and Senior Citizen’s Utility Bills

February 24, 2017 – Jefferson County Public Utility District (PUD) commissioners are working on the final details of a new program that would directly benefit low-income elderly and disabled residents of Jefferson County, Washington.

Kenneth Collins, a Public Utility District commissioner, said he and his colleagues will vote to implement the new program on March 7, 2017. It will be implemented in mid-March if it passes, said Collins.

The resolution will be adding on to a 2013 resolution that established reduced electric and water rates for low-income seniors and low-income disabled citizens. The new program would allow any resident who qualified for that program to be eligible for up to $35 off their utility bills, which would be an increase from the current $20 discount.
