Over the past couple of months, the Momence Police Department’s web site has been going through a redesign process. The site is now up and running. The City is especially appreciative of the efforts of local residents Bruce and Eileen Crooks who donate their time as “webmasters” of the City of Momence and the Momence Police Department’s websites. Along with the new look of the Police Department site, a Facebook Page is also available to effectively communicate with residents and businesses through social media. Check out the new website at: http://police.cityofmomence.com. From the homepage, individuals can connect with the Facebook Page, access forms and reports, biographies of our officers with email contacts, and current local events and police blotter reports.
In other news, The City, as well as many other municipalities in the county, is still in the Electrical Supply Aggregation Program that was contracted in 2013. Residents in the program are still receiving electric supply costs at 4.983 cents per KWH while the current rate for ComEd electric supply is between 7.1 to 8.1 cents per KWH. According to data compiled by the aggregation brokerage firm, NIMEC, to date, residents in the Aggregation Program have saved an average of $123.00. The current contract in the Aggregation Program runs through February 2015.
A representative at NIMEC forwarded a reminder that every time someone moves, even if just across the street, the ComEd account at that residence is closed and in setting up new service, a new account is opened resulting in a new ComEd account number with ComEd rates. As an example, if one roommate moves out of a residence and another roommate stays but changes the account into his/her name, that generates a new ComEd account and a new ComEd account number -- even in the same home.
In March of 2013, the Aggregation Program automatically enrolled all eligible accounts at that one point in time. Thereafter, no account is automatically enrolled, but anyone is welcome and free to call FirstEnergy to enroll his/her account at any time during the term. To do so, just call 888-651-5200.
Mayor, City of Momence
