City Manager’s Weekly Report
for week ending Aug. 11, 2018

Republic Messed Up. Waste Management began servicing your homes on August 1, 2018. Strangely, current charges on your Republic invoices reflect services through September, 2018. Do not pay the current charges on this invoice. You will receive a closing bill for July services only from Republic at the end of August. Republic also failed to pick up some of their own receptacles, those identified as Allied or Rabanco. Waste Management is trying to rectify this as quickly as possible, although it is not supposed to be their job.

First Normandy Park National Night Out. This past Tuesday night, 6-8pm, Normandy Park held its first National Night Out event, inviting the public to interact with police officers in a casual, neighborhood get-together. This first such event wasn’t big, but it was fun with pizza and beverages. Hopefully, over the next year, we can develop volunteer organizational support and a foster a growing National Night Out event. Check out the photos below!

$320,000 Available to Help South King County Customers Pay PSE bills. Funds are available for PSE customers in 10 counties, including Seattle and Tacoma. More than $5 million dollars are still available to help income-eligible Puget Sound Energy customers pay their energy bills. The financial assistance comes from PSE’s Home Energy Lifeline Program (HELP) to eligible customers in Island, King, Kitsap, Kittitas, Lewis, Pierce, Skagit, Snohomish, Thurston and Whatcom counties who need assistance paying their PSE electric and natural gas bills. Since the start of the year, 31,000 PSE customers have received a total of $13.8 million through PSE’s HELP. The 11 regional community action agencies that process bill-payment assistance applications for PSE customers report they are ready to help thousands of additional households throughout the summer. Depending on income and household size, a qualified PSE customer can receive up to $1,000 in PSE utility-bill credits. To make an appointment to ask for HELP assistance, PSE customers can find the community-action agency nearest them by calling 1-866-223-5425 or viewing a list of agencies on pse.com/assistance.
