Water Relief Approved By MDC For Fed Workers in Shutdown

More help is being made available to federal workers impacted by the partial government shutdown now in day 34.

The Miami-Dade Commission has voted on a resolution to waive water and sewer late fees and to prevent service disconnection for federal workers dealing with a second round of no pay.

“By waiving late fees and keeping the water running, we can do our part as a County to provide some relief to those federal employees who are not receiving their pay through no fault of their own,” said sponsor and Chairwoman Audrey Edmonson said.

About 800,000 government workers have either been furloughed or are working without pay in the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.
