Gas Rates

If you are a Natural Gas customer, your gas is billed in MCF (thousand cubic feet), which is what your meter displays. The base charge applies as a minimum bill if no gas is consumed. Each month's gas bill will consist of: (1) a base charge consumed; (2) cost of gas; and (3) City distribution fee. This is effective with bills rendered on and after April 1, 2015.
