MEEKER | If you live in a household with one family member who is 65 years or older, as shown by a birth certificate, school records, and military discharge documents or other supporting documentation acceptable to the Meeker Sanitation District, you may qualify for a reduced sewer rate. Eligible households will receive a discount on their sewer bill each month.
To qualify for the program, the total gross family income for all residents of the household must be less than $1,781.65 per month or $21,379.80 per year as evidenced by Social Security Benefit Statement for 2021, federal income tax returns for all household members for the year 2020. If you are not required to file an income tax return, please provide copies of all non taxable income received by the household for the year 2020.
If you have been previously enrolled in this program, the Meeker Sanitation District has your proof of age on file and will only require that you provide the income tax return or written proof of non-taxable income. In order to qualify for the program please provide the Meeker Sanitation District with the required information no later than December 15th of each year. If you start this program any other month than January of the year, your reduction will become effective the following month after the information required is presented to the Meeker Sanitation District.
If you have any questions or need further information, please contact the office of the Meeker Sanitation District at 878-5192, or stop by at 265 8th Street.
