CITY UTILITY ASSISTANCE - HELP OTHERS

If you haven't signed up for Project Share yet, this is the day to take a moment and go to the City utilities site.

Funding for the program comes from your contribution made as a part of your monthly utility bill. The Good Neighbor Program is operated by the Capital Area Community Action Agency 850.222.2043.

In 2008, customers contributed $56,861 (matched by the City for a total of $113,722). The City serves approximately 100,000 customers. That's less than 57 cents donated per customer, a year! Green Readers, if 1/2 of the City's customers donated $1.00 per month added to their utility bill, that's $12.00 a year. Can we contribute $12.00 per year?

That would raise $600,000 per year and no one who is low income and elderly, laid off from their job with children, or disabled and living on less than $700 per month disability would have their utilities cut-off for non-payment during the times of the year when it is the hottest or we have cold temperatures like Thursday night's 17 degrees.
