SEAGD gives $489K to city

Andalusia City Councilman Kennith Mount had a chance to play “Santa” Tuesday night, when he presented the city with a check from Southeast Alabama Gas District for $489,342.

Mount is the city’s representative on the SEAGD board.

The City of Andalusia is one of 14 municipalities which own the gas district. Each year, those municipalities receive payments based on consumption of natural gas in each city.

The check was larger than in recent years, and $89,000 more than the city budgeted to receive.

“I’d like to thank the management staff of SEAGD who made this possible,” Mount said. “It’s an honor to present this check.”
