The City of Bellevue is offering a utilities rate reduction or rebate to qualifying low-income seniors and people with disabilities. City staff will meet with residents to determine their eligibility beginning Monday, Feb. 4.
Those who received a rebate or reduction in 2007 need to reapply in 2008. A rebate is available for qualifying renters; a rebate reduction is available for qualifying homeowners.
To quality, a resident must be disabled or over 62 years of age, have lived in Bellevue for most of 2007, pay utility bills and have an income of $27,250 or less if single; $31,150 or less if a married couple. A household of four can make up to $38,950. Senior and disabled renters or condo owners who do not actually pay a utility bill, but pay through their rent or homeowners dues, can also receive a rebate.
From Feb. 4 to April 15, applicants can make appointments with city staff at multiple sites: City Hall, Crossroads Mini City Hall, Factoria Mini City Hall and the North Bellevue Community Center. From April 15 Nov. 28, people can apply for the discounts at City Hall. For more information, call Utilities at 425-452-5285.
