When Cerro Gordo residents go to the polls Nov. 6, they'll be voting on the next president of the United States and the freedom to collectively negotiate a lower price for energy. The village board has agreed to place a referendum to allow municipal aggregation plan on the upcoming ballot according to Mayor Brad Williams.

To help explain to Cerro Gordo residents what a municipal aggregation plan means for their energy bill, a Good Energy representative will be in Cerro Gordo on Thursday, October 11 at the Sr. Citizen luncheon being held at the Hope Welty Public Library. The luncheon is scheduled for 11:30 a.m.

Over a dozen counties and towns in Illinois including Cerro Gordo will be voting for this new energy referendum. The more counties which vote to allow municipal aggregation, the lower they'll help drive the cost of energy. Though the economics are simple, the language can be confusing. Good Energy's message is simple: Municipal aggregation means lower costs with no extra work for the consumer.
