Council takes steps to have one gas franchise

Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer

The New Prague City Council came to the consensus at its Monday meeting that it would prefer one gas franchise in the city.

The city viewed a presentation from Greater Minnesota Gas in March during which the company requested a non-exclusive franchise agreement. The city currently has a non-exclusive franchise agreement with CenterPoint Energy Minnegasco. Greater Minnesota has gas lines in a portion of the city that had recently been annexed.
