Special Notices

 

                                                                   Notice to Howard’s Gas Customers

The City of Howard’s gas supplier, Kansas Municipal Gas Agency, informed the city that due to the low storage levels and an early blast of winter weather, the gas prices have increased more than 60%.  The November 2018 gas supply purchases are 74% more than a year ago.  KMGA wanted to provide this information to us as we should expect to see a significant increase in both usage volume and dollars on the city’s KMGA invoice for November.  The council will discuss increasing the present gas rates at their next meeting Monday, December 17 at 7:30 p.m.  The significant increase will have to be passed on to our gas customers.

Focus on Water

Water Wasted In One Month From Leaks  

 

Leaks

Most people think that water leaks are someone else’s problem,

until they check!  Water leaks inside your home can account for as

much as 10% of your water bill, and waste 50 cents or more a day

if the source is a hot water tap.  Faucet leaks are obvious, but be sure

to check seldom used taps in the basement or outside the house.

If you notice a drop in your water pressure, any unusual wet areas

or bubbling water in your yard, call to have it checked for a leak.

Leaks in your service line may account for a large loss in water supply;

sometimes as much as 50%.
