NPGA Board approves Fort Morgan as new member

June 16, 2019

The National Public Gas Agency Board of Directors approved the City of Fort Morgan, Colo., as a new member during its board meeting June 13.

The city of about 11,000 residents was previously a wholesale natural gas customer of NPGA. Now as a full member, Fort Morgan will have representation and voting rights on the NPGA Board of Directors. Fort Morgan Director of Water Resources and Utilities Brent Nation will serve as the City’s representative on the NPGA board and City Manager Jeff Wells will serve as alternate.

The City of Fort Morgan has been an active participant in NMPP organizations for many years. The City receives long-term power supply from the Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska and is also active on the Nebraska Municipal Power Pool Board as well as several committees.

“We welcome Fort Morgan as a member,” said NPGA Director of Gas Operations Beth Ackland. “As with all NMPP Energy organizations, NPGA is member-driven and provides the benefit of local control. We look forward to working with the City to manage their gas supply needs.”

NPGA membership now includes 13 communities that own their own gas system as well as six additional communities that receive natural gas supply as customers.
