A public hearing and the first reading for a natural gas utility charge increase will be held at Wellman’s City Council meeting Monday. According to city administrator Nick Pacha, increasing that charge from $2.50 to $3.50 will help their reserve fund. He notes the amount of money in the natural gas reserve fund, which is used for repairs and debt repayment, is lower than what the state recommends. The hearing will be held prior to the council meeting at 5:30.
