ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- With summerlike weather hitting the St. Louis area this weekend, the city's health department is reminding residents to apply for some utility assistance programs that are available.
Most of the programs, though, have deadlines that are fast approaching. The health department says those who are interested are encouraged to call right away for details.
The City of St. Louis Department of Human Services says residents must be 60 or older to apply for special utility assistance.
