Dear Water Customer:
The Town of Burnsville has received funding from the Yancey Advancement Foundation to help
customers with delinquent water bills due to COVID 19 issues with loss of income/work, health problems,
child care expenses etc.
If you owe payments for water/sewer from March 31, 2020 to July 29, 2020 you may be eligible for a
grant to pay your outstanding balance. The grant will pay up to $300.00 on your balance for those
You will need to come to Town Hall and fill out a simple 1 page grant application. If you qualify you will
be asked to pay your July 2020 bill amount in full at that time and the grant will cover up to $300.00 of
what you owe back to March 31, 2020.
If the $300.00 does not cover your entire back bill you will be asked to enter into a payment plan to
catch up on the remaining amount.
The Town and the Yancey Advancement Foundation do not want you to fall further behind or have your
services disconnected which results in more costs to you. Please come in to fill out an application on or
before October 1, 2020. These funds are available on a first come first serve basis so do not delay in
making your grant application.
