Notice of Propane Transition

GRICUA Notice of Propane Transition
On June 21st, 2023 the Gila River Indian Community Council passed a resolution stating that the Gila River Utility Authority (GRICUA) would acquire the Propane Services Division currently owned and operated by the Gila River Farms.

nature of this division is a better fit with the utility services and operations of the Gila River Utility Authority.
