CRESTVIEW, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The Crestview City Council took several actions Monday night to help with financial stress during the COVID-19 pandemic.

One of the ways they are doing so is by suspending water and sewer utility late fees for 60 days.

City Manager Tim Bolduc said, “This will provide relief for individuals who are experiencing difficult times resulting from the COVID-19 business limitations and closures. The expected result of these lay-offs and furloughs is an increase in these fees which are not a part of the city’s expected revenues as reflected in the budget.”

During the meeting, Mr. Bolduc asked the council to give him authority to make changes to the water cut-off policy. The council unanimously approved both requests.
