In an effort to encourage community members to pay their water bills in a timely fashion, the local Water Department (OOMAPAS) will once again be raffling off a car this year among all who are current with payments.
OOMAPAS Director Héctor Acosta Félix explains in addition to having a chance to win a 2015 Volkswagen Jetta Classic, those who bring their water bills up to date may also receive discounts of up to 10% to 20% on billing.
He detailed all who are current with their water bills (*exclusions mentioned below) can participate in the raffle to be held on May 10th. This pertains to all who pay their bimonthly bills on time, or those who pay for a year in advance. It is worth noting raffle tickets are not yet available though will be given out to those who have already made payments early in 2015.
For each bimonthly payment, individuals will receive one ticket while those who pay for a year in advance will receive six tickets for the raffle. Those who pay for half a year will receive three tickets.
Individuals with outstanding OOMAPAS bills can also participate in the raffle by bringing their accounts up to date. He furthers, “We invite everyone to visit our Offices so we can review each individual situation and help in addressing late payments; this helps OOMAPAS as well as ongoing progress in providing better water and sewage services throughout the community.”
*Those excluded from participating in the raffle are those who receive benefits such as: Inapam, Pensioned individuals, Pápagos, Municipal Employees and the Disabled, as well as those connected to Residential Touristic, Commercial, and Industrial water lines.
The new OOMAPAS offices are located behind the IMSS General Hospital in the area of Las Brisas (Ave. Río Bravo between Ave. Marcelo Pino and Ave. Oriente).
