ORONOGO, Mo. – The City of Oronogo is asking voters to approve the sale of its natural gas system. We spoke with the city and Spire on why the city wants to sell and what it could mean for residents if approved.
Mayor Charles Wilkins says there’s a number of reasons the city wants to sell the utility to Spire, such as continued maintenance costs. “With the increased regulations, increased training, Spire is a large corporation, they’re in most of the communities surrounding us and with their expertise and ability, it will cut down the workload on our public works officials.”
Jim Channel should love this vote. No more having to chase down the gas leak which promises to create another “Cherokee Sue Explosion.
