Natural gas contract signed with Ellis County


The Ellis County Commission unanimously approved a contract with Secure Energy Consulting Inc. to provide natural gas for the county in a special meeting Wednesday at the Ellis County Courthouse. The resolution authorizes county administrator Greg Sund to purchase 50 percent of the need for the 2014-15 winter season.

With the federal highway bill expiring Sept. 30, commissioners discussed sending a letter regarding needed funding to Congressional committee members and the Kansas delegation.
