COWETA -

The City Of Coweta is starting a new program to provide financial assistance for residents and businesses struggling to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The "Coweta Coming Together" program was approved earlier this week as a way of helping businesses and people who live in Coweta.

Residents can apply for utility assistance, which would provide $100 per household per month to help pay for services like water, sewer, or electric.

Business owners can apply for up to $3,000 in aid for any sales-tax generating business.

A panel of local business owners will sort through those applications and make recommendations on who should get the money.

City Manager Roger Kolman said "the Board of Trustees is seeing this as a way to help those small businesses get through that rough patch and continue to serve the citizens of Coweta."
