FREDERICKTOWN — Village council approved a contract that could cut energy bills by 30 percent over the next three and a half years.
Fredericktown Council voted Monday to enter into a 42-month agreement with Palmer Energy Company for electricity. The agreement is for municipal facilities and utilities only, such as the water plant, village offices and street lights, Fiscal Officer Mary Lou Hannan said.
Palmer submitted quotes from six electricity suppliers ranging from .40 cents per kilowatt hour (kwh) to .44 cents per kwh. These quotes will be refreshed and the three lowest presented to council, Hannan said.
