2. Discussion concerning ONG
Gas Distribution System Evaluations. -- no action taken
... just discussion.
I have a
several sets of charts which former Mayor Gerald Carlburg presented to show
the City could still make money even if ONG's full valuation had to be financed.

was the most questioned cost in the numbers presented by Kevin Degenstein. That
cost is what ONG says it would cost for them to isolate the new Collinsville
system from their existing system. ONG's appraisal engineer said he had assumed
it was more appropriate for Collinsville to pay that cost than all the remaining
ONG customers. -- Ted
Degenstein (of EN-Engineering) gave the details of ONG's valuation of
the Collinsville gas system and the components of the $3.342 million total
price set by ONG.
