Negotiations started some time ago, Mayor Roy W:. Eves said today; and the matter was discussed informally with members of council this'morning to give them time to think it over before' an ordinance is introduced. : First Ordinance In 1906 Eves gave this explanation-of the franchise. Oh June 1,',1906, the city passed . an ordinance giving the West Virginia Central; Gas Company a 25- year franchise for natural-, gas in; eluding : aY clause that free : .fgas would be-furnished for. all; city buildings-for" the entire year. , • '". Then on,_N6vember : .18, 1924, the West Virginia -and Maryland Gas Company,;;assign'eesv of the -West Virginia. Central firm, was granted a .-35-year; ^franchise; apparently, Eyes said,;;fpr-the purpose of including airtificial gas since it was feared, ai-that time that the-supply of ..natural ..gas was- beiiig depleted. , Four .'meetings were held and at .none; of- th^rn'was" the matter of -iree "gas forrthe city 'discussed. The : second .'franchise';, therefore, omit- ted'the provision for .free gas. ; ,; This franchise'.was assumed by the present C&A; ; Gas .Company when: it'succeeded "the West Vir ginia/'and Maryland ..Company. .,• Under the new franchise, C&A continued to give the city/free gas for' the eight-month .'-period from April ito • November inclusive, Eves said;v . :••.: •'.. .'.''-•..• . -. .Paid For Four. Months The city paid for the four heating months of December, January, February and March. Under the'present gas rate for the year 1954-55, the city received free gas in the amount of $2,390. For the four heating months it paid $2,511, .Eves said. ''-:•••'•.. Eves said City Attorney Thomas B. Finan explained that the.Gas Company can get a more fair consideration for its bonds if it is paying/a franchise tax rather .than giving free gas.. . He pointed but that the company has discontinued the free gas practice in every Maryland community except Cumberland:'. Some members^ of : council have said, Eves revealed, that .the gas cumpany could operate: without a franchise and the v only" thing the city could do in .that case''would be to discontinue gas' service. Others have said they hope to see free gas continued. • However, Eyes said, the city has taken no action oh the proposal as 13 Deer Kills Reported As Season Opens Fairgo Man Gets One Minutes After Start Of Season There;were 13 kills reported in the 'area by noon today on the first day .of the West Virginia deer season, with the first k'll credited to Virgil McKenzie, of Fairgo.
