Submitted By: Teresa Herrera, City Secretary

SUMMARY:
The City has not charged Anderson County Veterans Benefits for water, sewer, or trash; we do not have a contract on file with them. Their current location is at 2000 S. Loop 256, Unit 36 (Palestine Mall). We need direction on how to proceed with the account. The City Council would need to vote to continue to provide the service at no charge or start incurring charges. The cost per month based on 2,000 gallons of consumption will be $95.00.

County veteran services offices provide assistance, counsel, and advocacy for veterans, spouses, widows, and dependents, helping them to obtain state and federal veterans’ benefits. The offices can help secure copies of DD214s, medals, and certificates, and provide information on VA healthcare, service-connected claims, pensions, dependency indemnity claims, education, home loans, insurance, burial benefits, and other veterans concerns. There is a county residence requirement to obtain service.
RECOMMENDED ACTION:
It is requested that City Council provide direction to the staff on the water, sewer, and trash account for Anderson County Veterans Benefits located at 2000 S. Loop 256 Unit 36.
