NYC Storm Damaged Homes get Water Bill Reprieve

Written by Carrie B.  |  02. December 2012

Homes that suffered extensive damages during Superstorm Sandy will be extended a grace period to pay their water bills, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Friday.

The courtesy will be extended to about 3000 of those who suffered extensive damages and received a yellow or red tag. The grace period is expected to delay payment due dates until June.

Under the same measure, the city will also waive the standard fees for those whose services have been interrupted, as well as suspending interest fees and collection on properties that were delinquent before the storm.

This comes on the heels of a similar break for property taxes on the homes damaged by the storm released on Thursday by the mayor.
