The Kingsbury Park District Board met Monday night. Director Jerry Sauerwein reported that the new tractor, purchased a few months ago, broke down again and the company will be sending a new replacement by June. For now, a loaner was provided to the park district. Soccer will be starting March 22, a week later than planned due to the weather. Sauerwein informed the board he was asked to join a task force through the Illinois Park and Recreation Department. He will be representing the southern Illinois area. The board asked that the purchase process of the security system for the pool and skateboard park be stepped up. The board then went into executive session to discuss land acquisition.

METRO EAST GROUP WORKS TO STOP AMEREN PRICE HIKE

Consumer advocacy groups in the Metro-East are working to stop Ameren's proposed rate hike.  The Citizens Utility Board and AARP Illinois are urging state regulators next month to reject Ameren-IP's request for a 130-million dollar increase, affecting more than a million electric and gas customers.  At a Belleville press conference recently, a spokesperson for CUB said the utility company shouldn't get any rate increase because Ameren's profits last year went up from 51-million to 127-million dollars. A spokesperson for Ameren-IP calls the rate hike necessary to cover their actual operation costs and to insure reliable service, noting that Ameren-IP is legally separate from its corporate parent.
