South Bruce Gas Initiative Begins Next Phase

Yesterday, the municipal councils of Kincardine, Arran-Elderslie and Huron-Kinloss received the results of their confidential Request for Information process designed to solicit interest and identify potential partners to implement the proposed new natural gas distribution utility for South Bruce.  

Mayor Eadie said “The Request for Information approach has been a success. It has produced multiple, high quality responses from a very impressive range of potential partners”.    “We are very encouraged with these preliminary responses” said Mayor Twolan.  “We all believed it was very important for our citizens that we tested the market to see who is interested in serving our community and to understand what they bring to the table in terms of natural gas experience, financial resources, and ability to get this project done in a cost-effective, timely way for our communities”.  Mayor Eagleson said “Our next step is to schedule separate, face to face meetings with the various respondents we are most interested in, with a view to clarifying and confirming the details of the various options now before us”.  Mayor Eadie said “We anticipate being in a position to select our preferred partner by the end of the summer. 

Thereafter all three municipalities intend to host information meetings so the public will have a chance to understand the approach we intend to pursue and the next steps to make natural gas service a reality for our communities”.
