The upcoming March 2 franchise election is an opportunity for Edmond residents to approve a franchise agreement between the City of Edmond and Oklahoma Natural Gas.
“This franchise will outline how Oklahoma Natural Gas and the City of Edmond work together,” says Martie Oyler, Oklahoma Natural Gas Community Relations Manager. “Residents will continue to benefit from safe, affordable and reliable natural gas service as they have for so many decades.”
What is a Franchise Agreement?
A franchise agreement lays out detailed rights and responsibilities between the City and Oklahoma Natural Gas for the next 25 years. The franchise allows Oklahoma Natural Gas to work within the city’s public ways to place, maintain and operate a natural gas system.
How Does Edmond Benefit?
Approval of this franchise would replace the gross receipts ordinance in place today. The revenue collected by Oklahoma Natural Gas on behalf of the City helps the City with future growth and improvements.
How Will It Impact Customers?
If approved, Oklahoma Natural Gas customers will see a 3% franchise fee as the line item description on their bill. This will replace the 2% gross receipts ordinance fee that is currently collected. These fees are collected on behalf of, and paid to, the City of Edmond.
