BE IT ORDAINED BY THE TOWN COUNCIL OF THE TOWN OF WESTLAKE, TEXAS: SECTION 1. As of the effective date of this amendatory ordinance, and upon acceptance by Lone Star Gas Company of the provisions hereof, Section 4 of the aforesaid captioned franchise ordinance enacted on June 3 , 19 67 , shall be stricken, cancelled and nullified and there shall be substituted in lieu thereof a new provision reading as follows: "SECTION 4 , In addition to the rates charged for gas supplied, Company may make and enforce reasonable charges, rules and regulations for service rendered in the conduct of its business including a charge for services rendered in the inauguration of natural gas service, and may require, before furnishing service, the execution of a contract there- for. Company shall have the right to contract with each customer with reference to the installation of, and payment for, any and all of the gas piping from the connection there- of with the Company's main in the streets or alleys to and throughout the consumer's premises. Company shall own, operate and maintain all service lines, which are defined as the supply lines extending from the Company's main to the customer's meter 'where gas is measured by Company. The consumer shall own, operate, and maintain all yard lines and house piping. Yard lines are defined as the underground supply lines extending from the point of connection with Company's customer meter to the point of connection with consumer's house piping." SECTION 2. Enactment of this amendatory ordinance shall in no way ever be construed so as to diminish or impair any consumer's ownership interest in service lines (or portions thereof) installed prior to the effective date of this amendatory ordinance. SECTION 3. The terms and provisions of this amendatory ordinance shall be deemed to be severable, and if the validity of any section, sen- tence, clause or phrase of this amendatory ordinance should be declared to be invalid, the same shall not affect the validity of any other section, sentence, clause or phrase of this amendatory ordinance. SECTION 4. Except as heretofore and hereinabove changed and amended, the terms, provisions, conditions and requirements of the aforesaid franchise ordinance shall remain in full force and effect. SECTION 5. This amendatory ordinance shall become effective as of (.-2j �:,�)e�,7F%if , 1982.. if the Company files its written acceptance othe prions of this ordinance within sixty (60) days after its final passage and approval by this Town and upon acceptance, the provisions hereof shall be binding upon Town and Company, their successors and assigns. 198.1*, ATTEST: PASSED AND APPROVED ON THIS E --DAY OF Y€' THf , Secretary /T— Mayor Town of Westlake , Texas STATE OF TEXAS X X COUNTY OF TARRANT X I, dY 4— , Secretary of the Town of Westlake V , Tarrant County, Texas, do hereby certify that the above and foregoing is a true and correct copy of an amendatory ordinance passed by the Town Council of the Town of Westlake , Texas, at a dQ^ �r session, held on the /7,�X, day of ¢77 , 199L as it appears of record in the minutes of the Town Council in Book page. ^ WITNESS MY BAND AND SEAL OF SAID TOWN, THIS THE 12V- day of ;2s4- 'd# , A.D. 1981. If Seoetary Town of Westlake Texas Lona Star Gas Company DIVISION OF DISTRIBUTION V. R. Henderson 319 Main Street Manager Grapevine, T exas 76051 The Honorable Mayor Dale White and City Council City of Westlake, Texas Gentlemen: July 1, 1981 In response to State and Federal regulation of natural gas pipeline safety, Lone Star Gas Company has re-evaluated its practice relating to installation and maintenance of service lines. In order to fully meet the Company's responsibility for gas service from its main line to the point of delivery for each customer, it is necessary to define the terms "service line" and yard line" in our existing franchise agreement with the City of Westlake. The proposed franchise amendment will allow Lone Star Gas Company to contract with our customers for installation and maintenance of "service lines" which are defined as all of the gas piping from the connection with the Company's main up to the meter where gas consumption is measured. Each customer will be responsible for installation and maintenance of his yard line. A "yard line" is defined as .an underground supply line extending from the point of connection with a customer's meter to the point of connection with that customer's house piping. In addition to allowing Lone Star Gas Company to comply with regulatory law, this new policy will offer the advantages of: 1. Quick response with repair of leaks after they are detected on a service line; 2. Minimum periods of disrupted service for customers while service lines are being repaired; 3. Allowing efficient use of labor and materials to effect repairs or to provide new installations; and, 4. Increased safety for customers by assuring service line installation according to local, State and Federal standards. Although this new service line policy will place additional responsibility upon Lone Star Gas Company, we believe the overall efficiency and improved safety of operation provide ample justification for compliance with regulatory requirements. r V.

Polyethylene pipe can be jointed with a compression type fitting that doesn't require cathodic protection. One approved type through 2" is the AMP fitting. Non -corrodible meter service riser requires a support post and connecting clamp. It can be connected by the AMP fitting, heat fusion, or mechanical compression couplings with cathodic protection.
