Gas pipelines, contracts, and financial statements were the topics of the day at the Water, Gas, and Light board meeting Thursday morning.
It was announced that WGL and MillerCoors Brewery will be splitting the cost of a $451,000 natural gas pipeline. The pipeline is slated to run from Mock Road to the Brewery on Clark Avenue. Mayor Dorothy Hubbard says the pipeline will provide MillerCoors services to run their product more efficiently and the construction should not cause additional traffic concerns.
Discussion of another easement for a natural gas pipeline took place. The potential pipeline would run along Washington Street to developing areas. Hubbard says this potential pipeline is only in discussion and would be preparation and anticipation of new businesses coming to the area.
After the gas pipeline discussions, WGL board members went into other topics.
A contract with Electric Cities of Georgia was also renewed for another two years. ECG is an organization that provides resources and network opportunities for WGL.
Interim President Tom Berry also announced that WGL will not be providing services to the Walmart that will soon be built on Gillionville Road in Albany. Berry adds that Wal-Mart tends to lean towards Georgia Power for services.
The Financial Statement for March 2014 was also presented during the meeting.
