A Resolution Regarding Certain Changes to the Natural Gas Service Boundary across Sterling Ranch.

Springs Utilities is bringing forward a proposed Resolution regarding certain changes to Colorado Springs Utilities' natural gas service boundary across Sterling Ranch.

Per City Charter 6-70 and City Code 7.5.701, City Council establishes Springs Utilities' "extension policies", including the establishment of Springs Utilities' service territory boundaries, by resolution. As the affected territory is outside of the City's municipal boundary, finalizing this boundary changes also requires Colorado Public Utilities Commission approval.
