MOUNT VERNON — The city has been notified by AEP Energy, the city’s municipal aggregation electricity supplier, of an increased cost being passed through to customers, Mayor Richard Mavis reported Friday.
Recent transmission rate increases approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio will cause a slight increase to most customers. According to AEP Energy, the increase will be less than $1.50 per month for most customers for the period through May 31, 2014.
The city’s next clean-up day is Saturday, July 6. Between 8 a.m. and noon, Mount Vernon residents may drop off household waste at Allied Republic Waste on Tilden Avenue and pay half price, with the city paying the other half. Minimum charges is $40, so citizens would pay a minimum $20.
An ID is required to verify Mount Vernon residency and no hazardous materials, yard waste, roofing, concrete or tires will be accepted. Go directly to the back gate behind the building.
