The Senior Citizens of our community are one of our true assets. In these tough economic times they deserve a leader who will try to help them whenever possible. That is why one of the first pieces of legislation that I brought to the council was the “Senior Citizen Discount”.

This discount applies to the water bill for all of our households where the customer is 62 years or older and resides inside the city limits. This discount is funded through funds acquired through a contract with HIDTA. No taxpayer funds are allocated to pay for this discount.

Over the past three years, I am proud to report that more than 2,200 senior residents of Crown Point have saved more than $300,000 with the Senior Citizen Discount.
