A natural gas rate increase will take effect July 1st in Wellman. The City Council approved the second reading of the ordinance amendment at their meeting Monday, and waived the third. The natural gas utility charge is being raised by a dollar to $3.50. City Administrator Nick Pacha says the increase will help out their natural gas reserve fund, which is used for repairs and debt repayment.
