Holdingford Plans To Move Forward With Natural Gas Project [AUDIO]

HOLDINGFORD — The City of Holdingford still wants to move forward with their plan to bring natural gas to town despite being left out of the state bonding bill.

The city requested $2.2-million from the Senate Capital Investment Committee to help pay for the upgrades that would replace propane and fuel oil with natural gas.

Holdingford Mayor Ernie Schmit says it will cost each resident about $14.75 a month for the next 15 years.

Schmit says residents will still save some money but not as much as they could have saved if they were included in the bonding bill. The natural gas will need to be brought in from Swanville.

Schmit says this is the first time that the city has requested bonding money and he’s disappointed with the results.

Greater Minnesota Gas is expected to work with Xcel Energy to have the natural gas installed by October.
