About Us

Our History
Bay City Gas Company has a unique history. In 1938, Mr. V.L. LeTulle, a successful resident businessman, purchased the privately owned gas utility that was providing gas service to Bay City. Mr. LeTulle gave the Gas System to the City of Bay City, with the stipulation that it was to operate for the benefit of the citizens. The goal of his gift was to provide affordable and reliable natural gas service to all residents. The deed established a three member Board of Trustees, of which two members would be lifetime appointees and the third member would be the Mayor of Bay City. During subsequent years, revenue generated by Bay City Gas Company has provided funds (over $15,000,000 since 1938) to purchase fire trucks, water towers, buildings, street improvements, and other large capital assets for the City.

 Terrence Allen, Chairman

Mrs. Janet Lewis Peden

Mayor Mark Bricker

During the 1980’s, the Company invested in a major upgrade to the entire gas system, which resulted in a gas distribution system that is state-of-the-art, safe, reliable, and which provides gas service priced lower than most others in this region. In 2015 the Company installed a new state-of-the-art meter reading system which allows the entire city to be read in less than one day. Additionally we are investing in technologies to make our mapping more accurate and accessible, as well as improving work order efficiencies. The Company continues to look for opportunities to better serve our customers and your comments and suggestions are always welcomed.
