NID to waive penalties for furloughed federal workers

NID to waive penalties for furloughed workers

Local U.S. Government employees who have been furloughed because of the federal budget impasse will have one less bill to worry about.

The Nevada Irrigation District board of directors voted unanimously on Wednesday to extend water bill payment periods for furloughed workers. The board also voted to waive penalties and interest on the accounts for up to 60 days after the furloughs are terminated.

NID Finance Manager Jim Malberg said it is unknown how many furloughed workers are district customers, but he noted there are several federal employers serving the area, including the U.S. Forest Service and Beale Air Force Base.

NID customers on federal furlough are invited to contact the district and sign up for the service. Call NID Customer Service at (530) 273-6185 or (800) 222-4102.
