Alton Aldermen passed a number of "housekeeping" measures at last night's city council meeting, but one of those moves will possibly impact Altonians for years to come. After the final public hearing on municipal electric aggregation, the city approved the plan of operation and governance, basically closing the deal with Good Energy to begin negotiation for cheaper electricity on the city's behalf.
The council also passed a couple of resolutions that will lead to the repaving of College Avenue between Statehouse Square and Washington Avenue. An agreement was made official that will transfer the operation of Rock Spring Golf Course to VVH Golf Management, a group led by local businessman Vern Van Hoy. Final approvals were given to ordinances providing a penalty if you are late obtaining an animal license, and to deed Toledo Avenue to the city.
