LAFAYETTE PARISH — The Youngsville City Council is looking to offer relief to businesses that may have taken a hit due to the Coronavirus shutdown.

This would be in the form of utility credit from the city on their utility bills this summer.

At their regular city council meeting last Thursday, a resolution was was passed that will give businesses affected by COVID-19 a two-month water and sewer credit.

Businesses will have to apply for these credits. Those approved would be refunded for their March and April utility bills.

Youngsville Mayor Ken Ritter said, " We know the benefit that these businesses do for our community. The sales tax that they contribute to infrastructure improvements, public safety, recreational opportunities that benefit the entire community."
