Two Lawmakers Call on NYC to Waive Water Fees Amid Virus

New York – Two Brooklyn lawmakers are calling on Mayor Bill de Blasio to postpone payment of water fees amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The health department is asking people to both stay home and wash hands much more frequently, which cause water usage to spike, said Councilmen Chaim Deutsch and Kalman Yeger.

The Post said that the mayor’s spokeswoman did not immediately comment.
