Board Meetings and News

Fort Hill Natural Gas Authority was established by an act of the South Carolina Legislature on March 31, 1952 (Act #799). 

Enabling Act

Fort Hill Natural Gas Authority was established by the South Carolina Legislature to serve the municipalities and outlying areas of Oconee, Pickens and portions of Anderson Counties. By statute, Fort Hill is a non-profit, tax-exempt entity and is authorized to issue tax-exempt "municipal" bonds to construct and expand our natural gas distribution network and facilities. There are four other Natural Gas Authorities in South Carolina, each of which was established by separate legislation. The others are Chester County Natural Gas Authority, Clinton-Newberry Natural Gas Authority, Lancaster County Natural Gas Authority and York County Natural Gas Authority.

When our Enabling Act was written, there were six original member municipalities of the Authority, which included Central, Clemson, Easley, Liberty, Seneca and Williamston. The municipalities of Norris, Pelzer, Pendleton, Pickens, Six Mile, Walhalla, Westminster, West Pelzer and West Union have become members of the Authority since that time. As also specified in the Enabling Act, the governing body of the Authority is a six member Board of Directors. Each Board member is appointed by the Governor of South Carolina to serve a term of six years.

Board Meetings

The Board Members of Fort Hill Natural Gas Authority typically meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 10:00 am. Meetings are held at 307 S Pendleton St Easley SC. Individuals interested in attending Board Meetings should notify Meetings@fhnga.com.  This is necessary to ensure appropriate space is available for all attendees, especially in light of preventative measures the Authority is taking with regards to COVID. In addition, prior notification must be given to obtain access to the meeting room due to the Authority’s security measures.  Please note, pursuant to the Authority’s Policy for Visitors to Address the Board, attendees will not be permitted to address the Board, unless prior notification was given in a timely fashion and the interested party was placed on the agenda.
