Attachments: 2012.01.30 Suspension Resolution (Atmos Mid-Tex 2012 rate case).DOC; 2012.01.30 Model Staff Report Supporting Suspension Resolution (Atmos Mid-Tex 2012 Rate Case).DOC; 2012.02.01 Frequently Asked Questions Regarding ACSC and the RRM Process.DOC; List of ACSC Cities - Updated 03.02.11.DOC
Agenda Item Number 7.
Attached please find four documents that address the rate case filed with Atmos Cities Steering Committee (ACSC) member cities yesterday. The critical portion of the attached package is the two page suspension resolution which should be adopted before March 6, 2012. Suspension recognizes and facilitates the exercise of city jurisdiction. Atmos Mid-Tex agrees that cities should have an opportunity to resolve the rate request with the Company before jurisdiction attaches at the Railroad Commission (RRC) and, therefore, supports the ACSC suspension efforts. Denial of the request, as opposed to suspension, could trigger RRC jurisdiction through an appellate process that would likely lead to litigation which ACSC hopes to avoid.
Please contact me if you have questions regarding the attachments or the ratemaking process.
