City Of Tallahassee Announces Utility Rebates For May

Tallahassee residents will be getting a discount on their utility bills.

Mayor John Dailey says the May bills will be lower after the city approved a 27% cut that will come in the form of a rebate.

“We took the extraordinary step of identifying $6.3 million in savings in our utility department that we are passing back to you…in the form of a rebate," Dailey said in a video posted to twitter. "So in your May bill, you will see a rebate as a utility customer.”

The city is trying to work with customers to restructure bills and avoid shutoffs under a 60-day moratorium.

Commissioners have also approved millions in grants for small businesses and non-profits struggling after business closures due to the pandemic.
