27 Feb Topeka Capital Journal reporting a Jackson County city may become unincorporated following natural gas price spike
The Topeka Capital Journal is reporting, “The town of Denison in Jackson County could become unincorporated if it doesn’t receive some type of assistance paying its gas bill.”
The newspaper published that Denison is a town of about 180 people that now owes about $241,400 in gas bills, which is double the $125,000 it paid for gas in all of 2020.
Earlier last week, KARA sent notice Governor Laura Kelly has submitted a letter urging the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to take all necessary and possible steps to investigate the causes of the system failures during the recent extreme-weather event in Kansas and protect Kansans from natural gas and electricity price surges resulting from increased demand.
