HARTFORD, Conn — The MDC announced on Monday it will be extending the late fee suspension on water bills that were due from April 1 to July 1. 

The company says the move is consistent with the executive orders Governor Lamont implemented to protect homeowners and renters.  

The $33 million plan to provide emergency help for renters, homeowners, and residential landlords affected by the coronavirus pandemic. It's in the form of payments to landlords on behalf of approved tenants, with a priority on lower-income households who've been denied unemployment insurance. 

The MDC is extending the suspension until August 1,2020 after which late fees will begin to be assessed. 

Payments can be made online on their website www.themdc.org or over the phone at (860) 278-7850.

In addition, the MDC has a partnership with Operation Fuel to help those customers in need of financial assistance. Operation Fuel can be reached at 211 or www.operationfuel.org.
