City council to deny Atmos request

May 7, 2012

The Big Spring City Council is expected to deny a rate increase requested by Atmos Energy's West Texas Division during its meeting Tuesday night, a move city officials say is necessary due to a breakdown in negotiations.
The council gave final approval to suspend the rate increase by a unanimous vote in late February, a move designed to give the city time to study the request, according to City Finance Director Peggy Walker.

Early voting light, officials say

May 5, 2012

Early voting totals are down in this year's municipal contest, according to local election officials, with just two days left to cast early ballots next week.

Early voting polls netted just 778 ballots — 678 in-person and 100 mail-in ballots — during the first five days of early voting, according to Howard County Elections Administrator Saundra Bloom, less than what she had expected in the contest.

“Considering the volatility of the 4B tax project on the ballot, I had really expected to see higher totals by this point,” Bloom said.
