One issue Tompkinsville City Commissioners will likely discuss next Thursday night during their city commission meeting is a report from the Kentucky Public Service Commission regarding the violation of 14 sections of the Code of Federal Regulations.
The violations deal with poor record keeping and safety issues.
As for whether the violations were serious in nature, Andrew Meinykovych, director of communications for the PSC, said, “Any kind of issue with respect to natural gas is always serious because of the safety implications. Natural gas, as we’ve seen over the years, is not something we trifle with,” he said.
Mayor Jeff Proffitt would not comment on the violations only to say, “We really can’t comment on anything. We’re waiting on more information from the PSC.”
Proffitt also said the city’s commission will likely discuss the issue at its Thursday night meeting.
He then referred all questions about the report to Commissioner Jeff Harrison, who oversees the city’s gas department. Attempts to reach Harrison by phone or in person were unsuccessful.
