Commissioner Dom Rivara then read a prepared speech concerning the next agenda item, a 1-cent surcharge per kwh for Oglesby electric customers.  Rivara responded to a recent Open Forum letter in the News Tribune from Tod Misener.  Misener had contended that Oglesby electric rates were higher than Ameren’s and cited his bill as an example. Rivara said that he had representatives from IMEA look into Misener’s claims, and found that Misener had failed to take into consideration the different rate structures Ameren uses.  Oglesby’s rate would actually translate into a $23 a year savings for Misener.  Rivara noted that the typical Oglesby customer saves $100 a year.   Rivara also noted that Oglesby’s rates are the third lowest in the state. 

A MOTION WAS MADE BY RIVARA, SECONDED BY YBORRA to accept Ordinance No. 802-052112, which levies a temporary $ .01/kwh surcharge on electric rates.  This surcharge will take effect July 1 and continue through Dec. 31, 2012, or until a rate study is completed and a new ordinance is established.

MOTION CARRIED.

 MOTION MADE BY YBORRA, SECONDED BY PORTER to table discussion on proposed pawn shop regulations.  The item was mistakenly placed on the agenda.  AYES:  PORTER, DANEKAS, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.

MOTION MADE BY PORTER, SECONDED BY RIVARA to accept Ordinance No. 803-052112, which restricts parking on the north side of Sunset Blvd. and places stop signs at the intersection of Sunset and Katelyn Court. AYES:  PORTER, DANEKAS, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.

MOTION MADE BY RIVARA, SECONDED BY YBORRA  to place on file an agreement with Buzzi Unicem which was negotiated last year regarding work to reconfigure certain transmission lines at the Buzzi Oglesby plant.  AYES:  PORTER, DANEKAS, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.

MOTION MADE BY YBORRA SECONDED BY RIVARA to place on file the Motor Fuel Tax allotment of $7,600.91.. AYES:  PORTER, DANEKAS, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.

MOTION MADE BY DANEKAS SECONDED BY PORTER to place on file the State Sales Tax allotment of $25,423.89 AYES:  PORTER, DANEKAS, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.

The Mayor then opened the floor for public comments:

Resident Tod Misener continued his questioning about the electric rates and the need for an increase before the rate study is completed.  Attorney Andreoni explained that the council knows that a rate increase is needed, and rather wait until the rate study is completed and have the “city puts itself in the hole,” the temporary surcharge will buy the city some time to come up with rates that will balance the burden of the increased costs between residents and businesses.  “We know right now that we’re not covering our costs,” said Andreoni.  Misener then asked if the city “was paying its bills on time,” and if we’ve “used up the line of credit.”  Mayor Finley said that “yes,” the city was current on its bills at this time, but “that it’s very tight.”  And Commissioner Danekas said that there were still funds available from the line of credit.  Mike Jenna, the representative from the IMEA, said that the city hadn’t participated in a rate study in more than 10-15 years and that the study would allow the city to make informed decisions.  Resident Drew Merriman joined the conversation by reiterating that Oglesby has the third lowest rates in the state and that the city-owned utility “keeps those dollars in town instead of sending them to out of town investors.”

Commissioner/Mayor Reports:

            Rivara – mentioned an article in “last Thursday’s” Chicago Tribune on electric rates and the impact of the EPA’s closing of coal-fired plants on those rates.  He warned that if “we get a hot summer – those wind farms won’t cut it.”

            Yborra – Announced a water shutoff for residents on Dale and Magnal streets.  He also said Woodland Avenue would be shut down for approximately 6 to 7 weeks while Gensini Construction worked.  He noted that Cruz Construction would begin work on Glen and First streets soon and that Fischer Excavating should be finishing up the first phase of the storm sewer separation project in three to four weeks.  Lastly, Yborra said he didn’t usually wish for rain during construction season, but that “we could use a ½ inch of rain to keep the dust down.”

            Porter – Announced the Oglesby Police Department’s Bike Rodeo, set for Saturday, June 2, and Oglesby Ambulance Association’s Fay’s Pork Chop Dinner on Monday, June 4.

Finley – Thanked Advantage Logistics employees for planting two trees in Memorial Park. Finley also mentioned several items in conjunction with Summer Fun Fest and he thanked Stough Group Senior Housing for their $30,000 donation to Summer Fun Fest.

MOTION MADE BY YBORRA, SECONDED BY RIVARA TO adjourn at 7:40 p.m.  AYES:  DANEKAS, PORTER, RIVARA, YBORRA, FINLEY. MOTION CARRIED.
