Today, we drive safer cars on safer roads. Decades of public information campaigns have made most of us safer drivers, but car accidents are still the leading cause of death for people between the ages of three and 34 in this country. Improvements in technology will continue to help bring those death numbers down, but most car accidents are caused by human error. The best way to end the risk of being involved in an accident is to practice safe driving behaviors.
The City of Borger has given its support to Texas Gas Service as it seeks to approve a cost of service adjustment filing.
The action was taken by the Borger City Council at its regular meeting on Tuesday afternoon.
Eddie Edwards, Borger City Manager, said that TGS last filed a full rate case with the City of Borger in 2008. During that case, one of its requests was a cost of service adjustment clause.
