8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

Ameren Illinois wraps up storm restoration work

3 months, 2 weeks ago from Ameren Illinois

More than 200 field and support personnel aided neighboring utilities

Ameren Illinois is finalizing its efforts to restore power to customers in the northwest corner of its service territory who were affected by a strong line of thunderstorms that made their way through the state last night.

With power restored to 99 percent of affected customers, the company is dispatching more than 200 Ameren Illinois and contract personnel to northeast Illinois and northern Indiana to assist ComEd and Northern Indiana Public Service Company with remaining storm restoration work.

"Now that communities in the Ameren Illinois service territory have been stabilized, we are dispatching crews through the mutual assistance process to support the clean-up effort that is going on in northern Illinois and hard hit areas in Indiana," said Richard Mark, president and CEO of Ameren Illinois.

The mutual assistance process is a voluntary process that assists investor-owned utilities from across the country with coordination of personnel and resources following a storm or other large scale event.  The United States has seven Regional Mutual Assistance Groups, organized by geography, that help facilitate the mutual assistance process. Expenses incurred as a result of mutual assistance are taken care of by the requesting utility.

"Ameren Illinois co-workers and contractors are selflessly giving of themselves to help our neighbors, and I can't think of a better way to show our support during this time of need," Mark said.

Ameren Illinois delivers energy to 1.2 million electric and 807,000 natural gas customers in downstate Illinois, and our mission is to power the quality of life. Our service area covers more than 1,200 communities and 43,700 square miles.
