The City of Merriam has extended its application deadline for its Franchise Fee Rebate Program until July 1. This is for a franchise fee rebate from your 2019 utility bills if you meet certain 2019 income requirements.
Utility companies collect franchise fees from their customers throughout the year. This program provides Merriam families – whose income falls within the limits established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development – an opportunity to apply for refunds paid on electricity, gas, and landline telephone bills from 2019.
Those interested should apply by July 1. Once our City facilities open during Phase 3, bring in all of your 2019 gas, electric, and landline telephone invoices along with proof of income in 2019 for all household members.
Please contact the Community Development Department at 913-322-5520 with any questions.
