Cadiz City Councilor Susan Bryant, who chairs the city’s Franchise Committee, said she and others still don’t have enough information to properly make a decision that will help the community.
“I don’t think, unless someone has additional information, that tonight we’re ready to make a decision,” Bryant said. “I’m still open to information from Hopkinsville.”
For many months, City Council members have discussed the issue, and haven’t yet decided whether they should renew their contract with Atmos Energy – the city’s current natural gas utility – or enter into a contract with the Hopkinsville Water Environment Authority (HWEA) and become an independent gas utility.
Bryant also said that no one else in the Franchise Committee have come forward with any more information than she has. On the other hand, she also said it bothers her that under the current arrangement, ratepayers often pay for improvements when they get their bills.
