The ATVG Board of Directors passed a resolution during the October 2015 meeting to present to the Tennessee Valley Authority in support of TVA purchasing needed coal and natural gas to produce energy from local counties TVA serves.
TVA purchases a broad mix of coal and natural gas from a multitude of geographic markets based on transportation cost, quality of the fuel source and numerous other factors. This would greatly enhance revenue and profits to economies of many energy producing counties in the Tennessee Valley and greatly impact unemployment rates within those energy producing counties.
ATVG members elected Morgan County Alabama Commissioner Don Stisher your 2016 ATVG President during the fall conference. Congratulations ATVG President Stisher!
