Natural Gas

RE: Letter of Recommendation for Community Co-op

The City of Gary would like to thank Community Co-op for the excellent service and handling of the natural gas project in the city. It has been a good working partnership between the co-op, the city, the businesses of the city and the residents.

We began work with the co-op by meeting with the larger users in 2016. It was determined at this time the city had sufficient usage to justify a natural gas project. The team at Community Co-op has hand walked us through each step of the way from the first city-wide meeting, to answering the various phone calls with additional questions, installing the lines (leaving minimal trace they were ever there) and finally the installation.

As a city, it is always a risk to undertake a new project and make such a large change but in this instance it has been without incidents and the reports from all involved are positive.

We would like to thank the Community Co-op team for their great effort, professional service and quick responses to any concerns or questions.
