BL City Council preparing for natural gas decision

Published 11:23am Friday, January 10, 2014

The Battle Lake City Council will decide next month whether to bring natural gas to the area, according to a report in the Battle Lake Review.

Council members will base much of their decision on how many residents sign a natural gas agreement. Residents must sign the agreement by Jan. 24 to be eligible for the initial natural gas supply, if indeed the council passes the plan.

Being part of the initial gas offering could save residents $1,400.

Current plans call for the utility to be constructed and in place by next winter if the plan passes the council.
