Kinmundy Residents Approved to Vote on Electric Aggregation in April ElectionThe residents of Kinmundy will get the opportunity to vote on electric aggregation on the April ninth ballot. In a special meeting Tuesday evening, the Kinmundy City Council approved to have the municipal aggregation referendum on the ballot for the April election. The Council also approved to accept the consulting agreement with Affordable Gas and Electric (AGE) of Mount Vernon.
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. Bob Wilt with AGE approached the Council last week at their City Council meeting regarding electric aggregation.
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.
