WAYNESFIELD — Natural gas is coming to Waynesfield.
Waynesfield Village Council members approved an ordinance Monday allowing the mayor to enter an agreement with Fanning/Howey & Associates to move forward with design plans to bring natural gas to the community.
The ordinance did not pass unanimously, as councilor Bill Motter voted against the natural gas initiative. When a resident questioned his vote, Motter sited financial reasons.
“I am for natural gas,” Motter said, “if it is affordable.”
