NOTIFICATION TO RESIDENTIAL AND SMALL BUSINESS WATER CUSTOMERS REGARDING WATER SERVICE PROTECTIONS

Village of Champlain

NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL AND SMALL BUSINESS WATER CUSTOMERS

Moratorium on Water Service Termination, Moratorium on Water Relevy, and

 Opportunity for Deferred Payment Agreements

On May 11, 2021 Governor Cuomo signed into law amendments to the Public Service Law that prevent municipalities and public utilities from terminating water service provided to residents and small businesses for non-payment during the COVID-19 state of emergency.  Additionally, the amendments prevent municipalities from relevying previously accrued water charges on or after May 11, 2021 until the end of the COVID-19 state of emergency.  The state disaster emergency expired on June 24, 2021.

All water suppliers must notify residential and small business customers of the protections afforded under the law.

Please be advised that service termination and relevying past due water charges is prohibited for an additional 180 days after June 24 2021, for those residential and small business customers who have experienced a change in financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 state of emergency.

If you are a resident or small business that has experienced a change in financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 state of emergency and would like to request relief from service termination and relevying until December 22, 2021, you must contact Mary Spring at 518-298-4152 or mary@vchamplain.com no later than July 15, 2021.

Please be further advised that the law does not eliminate a customer’s obligation to pay accrued charges.  However, customers who have experienced a change in financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 state of emergency must be provided with the opportunity to enter into a deferred payment agreement without the imposition of deposits, late fees, or penalties.

If you are a residential or small business customer who has experienced such a change in financial circumstances and wish to enter into a deferred payment agreement to address any outstanding or accrued payments, you must contact Mary Spring at 518-298-4152 or mary@vchamplain.com no later than July 15, 2021.  Additional information and supporting documentation from customers seeking to enter into a deferred payment agreement may be required.

Customers that do not request protection from service termination, or relevying, or do not enter into a deferred payment agreement, will be subject to the enforcement and lien provisions authorized by State and local law upon the expiration of the Public Service Law’s protections.

Please direct all other questions or concerns to Mary Spring at 518-298-4152 or mary@vchamplain.com

NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL AND SMALL BUSINESS CUSTOMERS

 

MORATORIUM ON WATER SERVICE TERMINATION, MORATORIUM ON WATER RELEVY AND OPPORTUNITY FOR DEFERRED PAYMENT AGREEMENTS

 

 

The moratorium on water shutoffs for non-payment during the COVID-19 pandemic, which began in June 2020, has been extended and expanded. The current moratorium, which amends Public Service Law § 89-b and 89-I, prohibits water works corporations and public water providers from disconnecting certain customers for nonpayment during the COVID-19 state of emergency.

The moratorium is now in effect until the COVID-19 state of emergency ends or December 31, 2021, whichever date is earlier. Thereafter, qualifying customers who have experienced a change in financial circumstances due to COVID-19 may be eligible for an additional 180 days of protection from shutoff for nonpayment.

 

In addition to residential customers, the moratorium now also covers qualifying small business customers as well as customers whose accounts serve residential premise (e.g. landlords). The moratorium also temporarily prohibits municipalities from placing, selling or enforcing a lien on a customer’s real property for unpaid water rents.

 

The moratorium does not relieve a customer of their obligation to pay for service. You are still responsible for your water bill during and after the moratorium period.

 

The Village of Champlain offers Deferred Payment Agreements with no required down payment, penalties or late fees for residential or small business customers that have experienced a change in financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 State of Emergency. The Deferred Payment Agreement is valid for 180 days from the end of the State of Emergency or 180 days from December 31, 2021, whichever date is earlier.

 

Self-certification of COVID -19 Hardship is required in order to enter into a Deferred Payment Agreement. Self-Certification forms can be obtained at www.vchamplain.com  or at the Village Office. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Village Office at 518-298-4152.
