I can't even imagine how this will raise our electric rates over time. They are bad enough with the winter premium now. As it is Remington is getting a huge break on taxes. Soon it won't be an incentive to live in Ilion with municipal power. My monthly winter electric bill is more than some people pay with Nimo.
This decision was made with one group of people in mind and guess what it's not the taxpayers of Ilion. It's the employees of the village of Ilion and making certain they continue to have the bloated wages and benefits they now receive.
Cutbacks? Recession? Not the employees of Ilion! They will always have a high standard of living off of our taxes.

I have a high electric bill now due to having an electric water heater and doing my laundry with hot water, 4 air conditioners and most of my fixtures in my home are florescents. about $130 a month now for a family of four with friends that stay over from time to time. In winter I have nymo but also have electric basebords and pay about 70 for nymo and close to 160 for ilion....sucks bad

you really have no clue do you. Old saying, keep your mouth closed and let them think you are an idiot rather than opening it and removing all doubt.

"Chatty Cathy", you and every other taxpayer have the right to know the information in which you inquire. It is concerning that the full terms and effects of the agreement are not being disclosed,and are being classfied by village and Remington officials as "confidential".If subsides or special rates and benefits exist,the people and rate payers have a right to know and should have an opportunity to formally voice their opposition or agreement.

Spoken like a true village employee or official. No factual information provided to back up your statements. Everything done behind closed doors. Let's take care of the good old boys. Ilion government will never change.

You are all right The Mayor & Degg Gray snuck around and completly fooled Nat. Grid. into giving up the right to supply Remington with power. With the help of KJ this will surely stick the rate payers, which was the plan all along, for the benefit of all those greedy village employees. I'll bet the BUM is getting a kick back on the Dam #2 repairs as well, after all Ilion Gov. will never change. But if any of you MORONS would read the paper,if you can,you would know that this agreement will have no effect on the rate payers. But the BS always sounds better to you who spew it.

do you ever read the crap you write? talk about self adulation.
And I really enjoyed all the factual information you provided to back up your uneducated rhetoric and name calling. I'll give you a D- on the sarcasm. OK let's get to it. you believe everything you read in the paper? Or everything that comes from the village board is Gospel? The village of Ilion has never lied about anything, right? And I'm an idiot, ok.
FACT: The damn project could not be completed because the village didn't have the money last year(2010)Where in the hell do you think the money will come from? The money tree? Cutting employees salaries or benefits? Nope Higher rates. The village is also going to continue to send water to Frankfort residents. About 200 in all. Are they going to pay a premium required as non village residents who don't pay villages taxes? Nope. Rate payers again.
Don't cry what assholes the villge board are because rates are going up next year or in 2013. And they will. But you are shocked and outraged. And we told you so. That's because you believe eveything you read and hear as the truth.
And you spent all your money on bridges and swapland that was for sale.

And I'm the idiot.

Do you read what you type you "uneducated, white trash, redneck Welfare trash" who talks but is to foolish to get real information. Whats the arguement, that this is a simple win win situation for Ilion & Remington, only dip $hits , like you , can't see it. PS: I can buy & sell you ten times over, hows that for facts. Go back to your double-wide bitch. Hows that for facts??

You morons set back and bitch and expect someone else to fix the problem for you. Well why don't you get off your fat arsses and go to every board meeting and complain at every board meeting until they get so sick of seeing all of you they change their ways. Year after year after year you people bitch and complain and do nothing. Either do something beside bitch or shut up!
