At Tuesday’s Dothan Commission meeting, city leaders talked about why utility customers have been paying more for their fuel.

Commissioner Paul Lee brought the issue up and says there are variable costs of different fuels that generate electricity.

Natural gas, nuclear coal and hydro are among them and right now; the production of hydro is down almost 50 percent.

City Manager Mike West says it’s due to drought conditions north of Georgia.

Meanwhile, many Dothan customers are questioning the fuel adjustment charge on their bills.

Commissioner Lee addressed that issue by saying, "The fuel adjustment charge is a pass-through. It’s a pass-through to Dothan Utilities, and it’s a pass-through to us as customers."

Commissioner Lee says the city of Dothan does not make a profit from the fuel adjustment charge.
