An executive of Ilocos Norte has requested a suspension on the payment of bills due in August

The government of Ilocos Norte asked public and private businesses and organizations in the province to postpone bill payments for at least a month to offer some assistance to every family impacted by the prolonged enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) imposed by the coronavirus illness 2019 outbreak (Covid-19).

Those who work in the service sector and earn daily earnings may suffer considerable difficulties when the government prohibits big gatherings and public authorities urge people to remain at home and practice social distance.

In light of this, Governor Matthew Joseph Manotoc said in a virtual news conference that the Ilocos Norte Electric Cooperative (INEC), via its general manager Engr. Felino Herbert P. Agdigos, has already agreed to postpone the August billing.

The provincial administration, on the other hand, will focus on implementing a government subsidy program to help people who have been unable to go to work or run companies owing to a series of lockdowns.

In order to mitigate the negative impacts of the increased community quarantine caused by Covid-19, INEC halted the disconnections for nonpayment of electric bills last year.

This affected all residential and commercial businesses in Ilocos Norte’s 21 municipalities and two cities.

Several hotels and resorts in Pagudpud had previously requested assistance from the provincial government as they struggled to keep their businesses afloat in the face of a strict lockdown.

Other public utilities have yet to respond to the governor’s request for a bill-payment moratorium while the province remains under a localized enhanced community quarantine until the end of the month.
