Quincy's aggregation consultant not going door-to-door

The company responsible for handling the city's municipal aggregation program is reiterating that it is not visiting residents door to door.

Reg Ankrom, a senior consultant for Simec, said residents will automatically be enrolled in the city's municipal aggregation program, because Quincy voters approved the referendum on Nov. 7.

Door-to-door solicitors offering electric supply services are representing a different company. The solicitors are required to have a license from the city.

The city locked into a three-year contract with Ohio-based First Energy to provide electricity at 4.194 cents per kilowatt hour. This is expected to save residents more than 23 percent on the electric supply of utility bills.

All residents eligible for the program will receive two notices with information on how to opt out. Residents already receiving power from an alternative supplier or from Adams Electric Cooperative will not be included in the program.

Therapy dog knows just what Baldwin students need
Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry. Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
