SMALLTOWN PAPERS INC f 217 W COTA 12/31/144: / / SHELTON WA 98584-2263 " [C' Back to Ameren for Mt. Pulaski Residents Mt. Pulaski has determined that it will return residents' accounts enrolled in the CITY's municipal electric aggregation pro- gram to the Ameren default electric supply for at least the next twelve months, follow- ing the last several months of Ameren's price-to-compare remaining below the Consortium's current supply rates. Residents of Mt. Pulaski who did not opt out of the initial program have been receiv- ing fixed price electric supply at 4.21 per kWh over the past twenty-four months. Given current indicative pricing for the coming program year, the Consortium has determined that returning to the Ameren default rate for the next twelve months will secure the most favorable pricing for resi- dents possible at this time. Residents will automatically be switched back to the default supply if they do noth- ing. The Consortium's decision to return to Ameren for the next year does not prevent residents from individually seeking their own Alternative Retail Electric Supplier. Those residents will have two billing cy- cles to seek an alternative supplier after the Consortium program contract with lntegrys Energy Services ends during the Septem- ber billing cycle. Consumers interested in exploring alternatives can visit the Illinois Commerce Commission's website plugini- or the Citizen's Utility Board cONC00RI .Tammy Renee H a r r J S Coach Gasaway Honored for Decades of Coaching ...
