The City of Tifton is considering adjusting its natural gas rates due to a decline in the city gas fund. The Tifton City Council discussed the possibility of increasing the rates during a recent meeting. Eric Groom from the Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia suggested a rate increase of 25, 50, or 75 cents as a potential solution. However, Vice Mayor Jack Folk expressed dissatisfaction with any form of increase, while Councilman Lester Cromer emphasized the need for further discussion. City Manager Emily Beeman confirmed that the rate adjustment was not an urgent matter, leading Mayor Julie Smith to agree to postpone a decision on the rate change for a later time.
