The Cleveland City Council has approved an agreement with the Georgia Department of Human Resources that will provide some water customers with help in pay their water bills.
City Administrator Tom O’Bryant told the council during their Monday night meeting that this is a new program modeled after the low-income heating and cooling assistance.
Signup for the program begins November first and Ninth District Opportunity Inc. will help qualify applicants. Like other such programs, the assistance is based on income and the number of residents in a household.
O’Bryant said, “We feel like we’ve got a number of households within our utility system that will qualify.”
