The rate schedule adopted va
ried slightly from the original
recommendation of the city's en
gineers, Barnard & Burk. The
schedules were raised slightly
in some categories, but, the en
gineers said, would leave the
city's rates considerably under
those charged by Public Service
Company of North Carolina, and
would maintain the competitive
advantages of natural gas with
other types of fuels. The rates
are the same adopted by the City
of Shelby, also entering the nat
ural gas distribution business.

schedules adopted by the city
and being used by Mr. Webster
