Business Structure

YCNGA was created by Act of the South Carolina General Assembly in 1954. It is therefore a political subdivision of the State that operates as a not-for-profit corporation and is governed by a ten-member Board. The Board is appointed by the Governor based on recommendations from the York County Council and the councils of the municipalities served. YCNGA is authorized to issue Revenue Bonds to finance expansion. All borrowing must be repaid from system revenues. YCNGA is not authorized to levy or collect any form of taxes and may not pledge the faith and credit of any other government entity.

All net revenues that have not been pledged, covenanted or contracted for other uses, must be used to expand the system or reduce customer rates.
