The City of Eagle Pass approved the first reading of the natural gas price increase at the meeting on Monday, July 10.

 

Texas State Natural Gas  has been increasing prices for residential sales, small volume commercial and industrial sales, large volume commercial and industrial sales, and public authority sales within the city in increments for the past five years in order to bring prices up to a reasonable amount . The 2017-2018 fiscal year will be the last year the rates are scheduled to increase until a price change is needed for cost sales adjustment.

 

“Rather than go with a big tariff we decided to go every year for six years,” said Carlos Libson of Texas State Natural Gas. “It’s $49,000 total on 2,700 customers.”

 

Libson also mentioned that the company has been assisting customers, mainly the elderly, to replace rotting yard lines with more modern pipes.

  La Ciudad de Eagle Pass aprobó la primera lectura del aumento del precio del gas natural en la reunión del lunes, 10 de julio.

 Texas State Natural Gas ha estado aumentando los precios para las ventas residenciales, las ventas comerciales e industriales del pequeño volumen, las ventas comerciales e industriales del volumen grande y las ventas de la autoridad pública dentro de la ciudad en incrementos por los últimos cinco años para traer precios hasta una cantidad razonable. El año fiscal 2017-2018 será el último año en que las tarifas están programadas para aumentar hasta que se necesite un cambio de precio para el ajuste de las ventas de costos.

   "En lugar de ir con un arancel grande decidimos ir todos los años durante seis años", dijo Carlos Libson de Texas State Gas Natural. "Es un total de $ 49,000 en 2,700 clientes."

   Libson también mencionó que la compañía ha estado ayudando a los clientes, principalmente a los ancianos, a reemplazar las líneas de tubería en descomposición con unas más modernas.
