Town saves cash on fuel


September 26, 2019

Moorcroft Public Works Director Cory Allison approached the governing body at a recent meeting requesting permission to change fuel distributors for the diesel stored at the town’s maintenance shop as well as the landfill and used for the town’s heavy equipment.

With council approval, Allison changed the cisterns from Farmers Coop to MG Oil two weeks ago. He says that the change incurs no added cost to the town as the three 1000 gallon containers are part of the agreement with the understanding that the town will not fill them with fuel from any other distributor, hence, the replacement of storage tanks.

“As of right now, OG’s a little cheaper, that’s why we went with them. Both [distributors] give a good service, but budgets are tight this year and we saved some money changing.”

Meanwhile the Coop tanks are awaiting pick-up by the company with the last in situ at the maintenance shop until the remaining fuel is used before it will be replaced.

Only diesel is stored at the maintenance shop and landfill as the town does not currently store gasoline onsite; instead, the maintenance crew fills their vehicles at Coffee Cup Fuel Stop.
