This six series special ‘At Issue in Brief’ addresses various aspects of municipal energy choice that voters in fifty-one central Illinois communities and counties face on the March 20th, 2012 ballot. For areas where the referendum is approved, the local government will then contract with Good Energy of New York to seek potential suppliers of electricity. They then will negotiate a price for residents of that community. Only homeowners and small businesses qualify for the new rate. Ameren remains the distributor of electricity, and only one bill will be issued.
WTVP’s ongoing, locally produced public affairs program. Hosted by series producer H Wayne Wilson, this weekly show provides an in-depth, up-to-the-minute exploration of issues that are important to the people of Central Illinois. One week might feature a look at educational initiatives, another might focus on community issues, while still another might give viewers a chance to ask questions of our elected officials. All AT ISSUE programs provide vital information to our viewers—from efforts to revitalize neighborhoods to joint cooperation between governmental units to riverfront development on both sides of the Illinois River. AT ISSUE is just one more way that WTVP 47 serves you through public television.
