Uppfif DM MolnM-S Council Takes Up Matter Of Gas Rate Rise As no quorum was present last week, no action was taken Wednesday night on a proposal from the North Central Public Service Co. that a small increase in the gas rate be approved. The council was to meet thi? evening, however, Oct. 30, to consider the matter. A rate increase cannot be made without the council's approval. The company bases its request for the rate increase on the fact that three wholesale price increases have taken place since it began operations, including one last August, and there has been an overall 18 percent increase in operating cost since service began in 1954. It is estimated that the minimum increase would be about 25 cents a customer per month.
