I do believe Bud has sworn to vote no on all expenditures until QPS does a forensic audit. I seem to remember reading that before... http://www.qps.org/files/board/Minutes_201011/042...

His supporters also don't see the people who whisper in his ear all the time. He is being used by some people who have an ax to grind against the school district but don't have the stones to run for the board or publicly press their vendettas. You almost have to have pity on the man. In the south, everything they would say about a guy like Bud would be prefaced or followed by "Bless his…

Bud is incapable of understanding most of the issues, so he feels it is best to abstain or vote no. I don't think there is much rational to his actions other than he gets a pat on the back from the folks that support him. I don't think he has brought forth a solution or innovative idea in years, he just fills the chair. Frankly its sad to watch him during the meetings, but his supporters…

Ameren told to lower electricity delivery rates

Ameren told to lower electricity delivery rates

1 year ago from herald-review.com

Christmas just came early for Downstate Illinois, but not for Ameren Illinois

From from herald-review.com:

Christmas just came early for Central Illinois, but not for Ameren Illinois. Regulators have told the utility to cut the rates it charges for delivering electricity by $45 million in 2014.

Next up will be a natural gas delivery rate reset, and this time, an administrative law judge, who makes recommendations as part of the state’s utility bill review process, is calling for the utility to get $36 million in annual revenue from its gas customers instead of the $47 million it had asked for.

The state’s utility regulators, the Illinois Commerce Commission, will meet to decide the gas rate Dec. 18.

Its decision to cut 2014 electricity rates was announced late Monday, takes effect Jan. 1 and will last a year under a new annual system of billing reviews known as formula ratemaking. Ameren Illinois is expected to be back before the ICC by the spring to request new electricity delivery rates for 2015.

In the meantime, the utility said Monday that it hasn’t had a chance to review the 2014 decision and figure out what action it may take.
