an update on the creation of municipal gas department

Last year we shared that, with Ferriter Scobbo providing the legal support, a municipal light department client successfully submitted to an initial town vote the authority to establish a municipal gas department.  Ferriter Scobbo provided its client with an analysis of the alternative methods by which a municipal gas department potentially could be formed and helped its client to understand and complete the statutory process successfully, which included the town votes and required notices.  Since that time, the second required town vote for the new municipal gas department to be handled under the Light Department Board of Commissioners has been passed and the client is now able to take next steps.
