Merriam families with low-to-moderate income may be eligible to apply for a rebate from the City. 


Starting on Feb. 1, the City of Merriam will accept applications for the Franchise Fee Rebate Program. The program offers residents, whose income falls within the limits established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the opportunity to apply for a refund on franchise fees collected from utility companies in 2017.


To obtain an application form, residents should contact the City’s Community Development Department at 913-322-5520. Applications must be accompanied by all 2017 gas, electric, and landline telephone invoices along with proof of income for all household members. For proof of income, residents can provide their 2017 W-2 income tax forms or social security papers as well as all 1099 forms, interest, pensions, annuities, and dividend statements. Applications will be accepted through May 1, 2018.


This year marks the 36th year that the City has offered reimbursement through the Franchise Fee Rebate Program. The City-funded program was implemented by Mayor Ken Sissom and the Merriam City Council.
