Staying Cool with Donated AC
The department will pay for the window air conditioners which will be more efficient and cut users' energy bills. To qualify, Columbia utility customers need to be more than 65 years old or disabled and meet certain income requirements.
"We hope that this is a success this year so we can do it in future years, so we can actually apply for a grant to fund this program," explained Adam Tipton of CMCA Community Services.
The Columbia City Council discussed the air conditioner program at its Monday night meeting.
