Tuesday night Tallahassee City Commissioner Andrew Gillum proposed using a recent payment the city received from a litigation settlement to help struggling senior citizens with their utility bills.
Gillum says the one-point-two million dollar settlement money must be used to benefit citizens.
"It provides some relief for our senior citizens, the most vulnerable in our community who quite frankly are unable to adjust to the rising, inflating cost of quite frankly everything right now in this country and in this community," explains Gillum.
Gillum says he expects to finalize details on the senior citizen utility aid program and present them in about two weeks.
