The city of Tompkinsville will be able to make some much needed improvements to their current natural gas services.  USDA Rural Development State Director Tom Fern announced yesterday that the City of Tompkinsville will receive $1.05 million in rural development funds.

Rural Development funds will be used to replace older deteriorating gas pipeline with new 2- and 4-inch piping and install new customer service lines from the gas main line to the customers’ meters in order to alleviate gas leaks and insufficient service and provide a safe and reliable source of natural gas for customers in Tompkinsville in rural Monroe County. The loan repayment terms are 40 years at an interest rate of 4.375 percent.

“The harsh winter experienced this year in Kentucky is a reminder of the importance of having access to a safe and reliable supply of heating fuel,” said Fern.  “USDA Rural Development is pleased to be able to assist the City of Tompkinsville with the financing needed for making these natural gas service improvements.”
