WG&L to buy portion of natural gas plant

Posted: Updated:

Water Gas and Light Commission met this morning to discuss buying a portion of the Municipal Electrical Association of Georgia's Natural Gas Plant. 

They're trying to buy 10 percent of gas utilities from the city of Griffin. And they say it would add another component of energy that could be used in the city.

Board members also discussed February and March Financial Statements. They found that some departments were off budget, but expect everything to go back to normal by the end of the year.

"Natural Gas at one time cost about $10, but now it's four dollars. There's no telling which way it will go as far as energy is concerned. Is it cheaper for you or the customer? It'll be cheaper for both," said Mayor Willie Adams.

The city commission will vote on the proposed power purchase next month.
