The City has created a water and sewer utility discount program in which low-income customers who qualify for assistance through PG&E's Customer Care Program can also receive a discount from the City of Morro Bay. Qualifying residents will receive a $8 discount (about 10% of a utility bill) monthly. Eligibility for Morro Bay's Utility Discount Program must be renewed annually. Open enrollment for this program occurs in July each year.
The discount is paid from penalties, charges for non-sufficient checks, and application revenues, so the discount is limited to that pot of money.
