Gas Rates for the March Bills
We would like to thank the residents of Divernon and Glenarm once more for all you did during the gas crisis in February. As some of you may have heard, some Villages/Cities in Central IL are charging their residents the full increased gas rate. Divernon is not! The Board decided to continue with the same rate for the March bills as February’s bills, and at this time to take on the responsibility for the costs above last month’s rate. However, it is yet to be determined as we move forward, how the bill containing the gas supplied to the Village as a whole during the February freeze will be paid. Looking forward to warmer weather ahead!
Looking for a gift for a relative, neighbor or friend? Or maybe to just do something nice for someone this chilly winter? Consider making a payment (any amount) toward their gas and water utilities. It would really mean a lot to them. A Certificate of Payment will be given to you to give to the recipient, if you choose. Want to stay anonymous, we can do that too!
All Divernon residents will receive 10% off at Encounters in addition to other discounts being offered. This applies to the gift shop as well. Located at: 480 West State Route 104.
Ameren Illinois offers $8 million in assistance to give customers “Fresh Start”.
