MUB extends deferred payment program to assist those impacted by the federal government shutdown
As part of an overall program with Morgantown City Hall and Morgantown Parking Authority, MUB is extending its deferred payment program to assist those impacted by the federal government shutdown. Deferred payment includes fees related to water, sanitary sewer, and stormwater services. The City of Morgantown has approved that this policy will apply to garbage fees as well.
Those wishing to participate in the deferred payment policy must apply in person at the MUB office located at 278 Greenbag Road. Official documentation identifying the direct impact of the federal government shutdown (a paystub demonstrating pay disruptions, an official letter detailing employment furlough, disruption of federal benefits, etc.) must be provided at time of enrollment. Additionally, proof of residency for the account wishing to be deferred is required (driver’s license, lease/mortgage documents, tax receipts, voters registration, proof of public assistance, other utility invoices, vehicle registration, etc.).
During the deferred payment period all late fees will be waived and no service terminations will occur. Following the end of the federal government shutdown, the accumulated past due balance will be spread across six months. Please note that this six month repayment period may be extended by MUB if the federal government shutdown continues beyond May 1, 2019.
Please note that deferred payment accommodations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Additional assistance is being made available from the City of Morgantown and the Morgantown Parking Authority. To learn more please visit http://morgantownwv.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=228.
