(Hyrum-AP) -- Hyrum is joining 27 other cities in Utah in waiving certain utility fees for families of military reservists called to duty for the war in Iraq.
Hyrum Mayor Gordon M. Olson says it's the least his city can do.
It's waiving as much as 125 dollars a month in utility bills retroactive to a reservist's date of deployment.
The waiver is for members of the National Guard or reserves called to serve, not for full-time military personnel. The waiver is good even if a reservist is serving stateside instead of in Iraq.
Spanish Fork, Springville and Provo and among other Utah cities granting similar waivers for municipal power, water, sewer or storm-drain fees or garbage pickup fees.
