City of Kinmundy to Possibly Vote on Electric Aggregation in April Election
If the city approves for it to be on the ballot, AGE will be the city's consultant and will pay all costs to education the public about electric aggregation. If the vote is successful, AGE will receive their payment through the successful bidder for electric service. Contracts would be for 24-months; however citizens will have the option to opt out of the program. While only Ameren electric customers will be able to benefit from lower electric rates, those who are on the Tri-County Electric System will still be able to vote.

The Board approved a $200 budget for the purchase of Christmas lights next year. The money will be taken out of the park fund. The Board approved the bills and minutes from last month's meeting.
