I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL with my wife and 2 kids. We are wanting to relocate to central or N. FL. We narrowed it down to Tallahassee (our first choice) and Orlando suburbs area our last choice. Both great places. Tally has me won over on everything EXCEPT reading about the utility bills being so high. The highest in the state. Can anyone tell me a little about this and if the stories I am reading are true?
I will be moving into a 2-3 bedroom apt community in Tally near Gilchrist Elementary for my kids school, so wanted to know what people thought and/or if there is a better area I should look for that has a better school rating and low utility bills?

Dont worry. Everything is rolled into one bill. Sewer, Water, Electricity, Natural Gas, if you have it..

That way you arent just paying for electricity..

The utilities are a bit higher than other areas of the state, but not outrageously so.

And its probably worth it..

Tallahassee is one of the most desirable places to live, once you get here, you will see.
