BIGGS, Calif. - Mayor of Biggs announced the city will be providing its utility customers financial relief to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City of Biggs provides electric, water and sewer utilities within the City. The City Council reviewed viable methods of providing financial relief to its citizens during the COVID-19 situation and approved two immediate steps:
1) Immediate suspension of the $4.95 per transaction fee for credit card and ACH payments. There will now be no processing fee for credit card, ACH (e-check) and PayPal payments. The payment system is available at the City of Biggs web site www.biggs-ca.gov
2) The City will provide a one-time $100 credit to each residential electric utility account in April 2020.
Because City of Biggs electric rates are among the lowest in the region, the $100 credit is expected to more than offset the average monthly residential electric charge this month.
