Preliminary OK given to plan for electric-buying negotiations

April 13, 2005|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

The Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday gave preliminary approval to a proposal to contract with a business consulting firm to aid in negotiations to buy electricity.

The contract would cost the city up to $134,750, according to city information.

The Hagerstown Light Department provides electricity to about 17,000 customers within city limits, but does not generate its own electricity.

City Light's electricity is bought through what is known as a wholesale purchased power contract. The consultant will help develop that contract.

The city's current wholesale purchased power contract expires in June 2006, City Light Manager Mike Spiker said.
