City Council will decide at the March 9, 2021 regular council meeting whether any of the high natural gas prices will be passed on to customers, how much, and in what manner.
As many of you have heard, with the extreme cold we have recently experienced, gas prices have skyrocketed. At this time the City of Uniontown is able to pay for the gas we supply to you. However, a portion of this may have to be passed on to you. We have an emergency plan if for some reason our gas supplier is unable to supply us. We appreciate all of the conservation efforts you have put forth and ask that you continue to conserve. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The utility billings that will be printed on February 26, 2021 will not reflect any of the skyrocketing gas pricing that the City has experienced. Your billing will be your actual gas usage with the same rates as we have had since 2009. There is a 5% water rate increase on this billing, but not gas.
Three ordinances were passed at the February 9, 2021 council meeting. They can be viewed on the Features page.
