Member Meetings Scheduled for Natural Gas Rate Change

Midwest Energy is holding member meetings to discuss proposed changes to natural gas rates in three locations this month.  Meetings will be held at:

Colby - Wed., Aug. 24 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. @ the Meeting Room in the Robert Burnett Student Union, Colby Community College, 1255 S. Range, Colby.

Hays - Tue., Aug. 30 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. @ the Stouffer Lounge, 2nd Floor, Fort Hays State University Memorial Union, 700 College Dr., Hays.

Scott City - Wed., Aug. 31 from 6:00-7:00 pm @ the Community Room, Scott City Library, 110 W. 8th St., Scott City.

If adopted as proposed, the base rate change would provide an additional $909,000 each year for pipeline safety and reliability improvements and operating expenses.  Preliminary rates result in a net residential increase of under $3 per month.  Midwest Energy’s residential and commercial rates would remain the lowest in Kansas.

Proposed rates and tariff language can be found here.

The Board of Directors will consider and vote on the approval of the rate changes at an open member meeting on Monday, Sept. 19, at 1 p.m. at the Midwest Energy Office, 1330 Canterbury Dr., Hays, Kansas.  All members are invited to attend the open meeting.    

Members may submit comments no later than Friday, Sept. 9 by email to Pat Parke or by calling 785-625-1405.
