City of Coachella extends protections for residents
COACHELLA, Calif. (May 28, 2020) – The Coachella City Council extended an eviction moratorium for residents struggling to pay their bills due to coronavirus (COVID-19) and a temporary suspension of water shutoffs and late fees.
To assist those struggling financially as a result of coronavirus, the City Council approved a temporary moratorium on foreclosures and evictions from residential and commercial properties through June 30, 2020. Residents must notify landlords if they need to temporarily suspend payments and make arrangements to pay the missed payments within six months after the end of the current State of Emergency. This city moratorium will help protect residents even if the state eviction suspension order is lifted.
The City also extended a suspension of residential water service shutoffs due to late or delinquent payments, along with any new late payment charges through the end of June.
The City of Coachella is closely monitoring developments of this public health emergency and will take additional action if necessary to protect public health and safety.
