City of Nashville Receives Project of the Year Award The City of Nashville announces that its municipal utility operation has been awarded the Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia’s Project of the Year Award for the Southern Region. The designation for Nashville’s natural gas system is being honored by in conjunction with the City of Tifton Natural Gas. In order to qualify for the award, the municipality must complete a project that promotes and grows the natural gas system the previous calendar year. The City of Nashville worked with The City of Tifton to provide natural gas for agricultural customers in Berrien County. In 2011, the two cities came together and

added miles of natural gas lines to meet the needs of agricultural customers throughout Berrien County The announcement was shared with Nashville and Tifton at the Municipal Gas Authority Annual Membership Meeting on May 15, 2012 in St. Simons. The Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia’s Annual Membership Meeting is the culmination of each year’s efforts and activities to provide affordable and reliable natural gas

service for each municipal member. The Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia was based on joint action to bring affordable, reliable and safe natural gas to municipalities. The Cities of Nashville and Tifton are perfect illustrations for the model of joint action on this project.
