City of West Plains To Offer Utility Assistance Due To Coronavirus

Mallory Snodgras

The City of West Plains is waiving late fees for people having trouble paying their utility bills.

Because of COVID-19, the City of West Plains says it’s making it a point  to work with individuals and their personal situations.

According to a news release, the city has developed an application where residents can request some help, including on late and delinquency fees, suspension of disconnected services, and unique payment options.

When the application has been received, city staff will call to discuss the application and decide on a custom payment plan.
