Gas Utility Meeting in Brownton 07 Mar 13

A second public meeting on a proposed municipal natural gas utility in the city of Brownton has been set for 7pm tonight at the Brownton Community Center.

The McLeod County Chronicle reports that on March 19th, the city of Brownton will have a special election asking voters to consider two questions: first, if the city should be authorized to construct a natural gas system and; second, for authorization to issue up to $1.9-million in general obligation bonds for funding the construction of the system.

At a February 12th public meeting, most residents asked questions regarding the conversion to natural gas from liquid propane (LP) or fuel oil.
