By City of Lawrenceburg, news release

LMU customers are not expected to pay utility bills for May and June.

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The City of Lawrenceburg Mayor Kelly Mollaun and City Council recognize the unforeseen economic hardships endured by our workforce and local residents as a direct result of the COVID-19 public health emergency.  The City of Lawrenceburg approved at a special City Council Meeting on 3-27-20 the Emergency Utilities Resolution to establish the “Public Health Emergency Economic Relief Fund” which will provide financial resources thru the City of Lawrenceburg for initiatives that aid those suffering economic hardship as a direct result of the pandemic and its widespread impact.

As such under the City of Lawrenceburg COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Response, any existing residential customer currently receiving a Lawrenceburg Municipal Utilities (LMU) bill for water, sewer and electric shall have their utility bill forgiven for the month of May and June 2020 and will not be expected to pay an LMU utility bill during this time.  LMU utility bills will reflect the non bill statement on May & June billing distributions.  An estimated $680,000 to $700,000 would be covered by the City of Lawrenceburg thru the Public Health Emergency Economic Relief Fund for LMU utility bill forgiveness for May & June 2020.  This waiver does not include pool water fill ups or City fiber billing fees.

Residents who have an existing rental agreement that includes LMU utilities should consult their landlord for any rental fee agreement changes. Landlords who include their monthly residential rent fee to include LMU utilities should be strongly encouraged to pass along this LMU utility relief ability to their renters.
