Harris Atddcb HogansviUe City Manager Praised For Buying Gas Early- and Cheaper By Bryan Geter Councilwoman Peggy Harris praised City Manager David Aldrich Tuesday at the regular meeting of coun- cil for having the foresight to buy nat- ural gas when the price was much lower. "We should commend the city man- ager for buying cheap gas in the sum- mer," she stated. "It is really helping out now." • Aldrich said even though he didn't have a crystal ball to look into to know how much the gas prices would increase or how much gas the city would need, he still purchased 50 percent at $5 per gallon during the summer. "Now I wish I had bought 100 per- cent at that price," he said. "The price has almost doubled." The city council held its regular meeting last Tuesday evening instead of Monday due to the MLK holiday, with a light agenda. Harris said she would like to see a monthly police report given which would cut down on the phone calls she was receiving at home from citizens. She added that it would be good to have "citizen comment" added to the agenda monthly. She said it would enable citizens to send written comments and concerns to the mayor and council.
