We're aware many residents across Benton recently received a confusing letter from Ameren. We reached out to our consultant with SIMEC Energy, Reg Ankrom, for an explanation. According to Ankrom, Ameren sent letters to residents of many of their communities that their electric accounts would be returned to Ameren electric supply this month (June 2017). Although Homefield Energy of Collinsville became the new MEA (Municipal Electric Aggregation) electric supplier in June, a sizable number of electric aggregation accounts did not get enrolled. Homefield explained to us they were converting to a new customer information technology system and failed to pick up a sizable number of our accounts. Those accounts will be automatically re-enrolled in July and residents need not do anything to stay on Municipal Electric Aggregation. As for the recent letter from Ameren, please disregard it. A reminder - Residents always have the right to opt out at any time and at no cost by calling Homefield toll-free at 866-694-1262. The MEA rate will remain fixed through June 2019. ... See more

About 8 months ago the Benton Police Department and community it serves joined efforts to start a Police K9 Unit for the City of Benton. Since that time an outpouring of support has come about through donations from all over the Southern Illinois Region. Through those donations along with the public’s support of fundraisers we’ve conducted, we are proud to announce the addition of “Ranger”, Benton Police Department’s first police canine. Ranger is a 2 year old Malinois purchased from Vohne Liche Kennels. Ranger and his handler will soon be patrolling the streets after completing a 10 week K9 Academy in Charleston, IL. ... See more
