Land Gets R-1 Rezoning Even though the Hogansvie hadarelafivelyshort Monday night, several addressed- The codncil voted to rezone land at Htmtcliff Village, had been ckssified as a Vc to R-I. Aldrich had a public hoaring two months ago so it could be rezoned to R-l, but since it (Huntcliff Village) was in bank- ruptcT court, nothing was done. Now the court has completely dis- missed the case and the city want- ed m clsrify the issue for what it was imtiaLiy inteaded- single faro- fly homes. In other , the council voted to continue with tie Employee Assistant Program (EAP) at a cost of $1,107 annual- ly for all 41 city enIoyees. Aldrich told the council that the c/ty is reqtfired by law to have the program in place. The cotmcfl voted to help pay the cost of MGAG rate tion fund. Aldrich said the fund got down low over the winter since overruns, high prices and high volumes were the cause. City Gas nder Study The Hogansvi]le Council Monday night voted to allow City Manager David Aldrich to work with Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia in deciding what "hedgd' is best for natural gas,purchases. The city agreed to purchase natural gas through the "HEDGE Program." "We participated last year," Aldrich said. "We hedged a little bit during the winter." Aldrich firmly stated the city needed to stay in the program but added that Hogansville has to be careful when hedging gas prices. 'ema  and it turns warm," he wamect He said the ciW needed to stay in the 50 percem rmlge, which is normaL "We need to hedge between November and February," he added. "These are the months that bite us the most." THE PROGRAM allows cities to select how many months it wants to be in the program each year. The program provides for hedging future prices for up to 36 months. Members may choose from three optio No Parficigmtion - No risk management participation; Participation with Gas Authority Decisions, and Full Participation and Decis . The HEDGE Program Risk Management Tools are divided into three classes. The "swap" is a simple trans- action which fixes the price of gas for a period of time. The monthly spot market price is traded for a CLXed price. According to MGAG, this tool has been used for the past sever- al hedge programs and provides the greatest protection from high prices. The disadvantage of the "swap" is it does not allow for any opportunity to benefit from falling market prices. The "collar" tool is a transac- tion which allows the price of gas to fluctuate within a range. It con- sists of a price ceiling and a price floor. Under this option, the price of gas will never exceed the price coiling or drop below the price floor. Compared to the "swap", the advantage of a collar is it offers a limited ability to benefit from declining spot market prices. The third option is the "cap."
