Galesburg residents, you could soon be saving some money on your electric bill. The city held a public meeting Monday night to talk about an optional program that allows the city to bundle residential and small commercial properties for a lower rate on power. Folks will be able to opt in or out, of the program on the back of the November 6th ballot.
In light of this new program, Galesburg city leaders said residents should be wary of peddlers soliciting door to door. There have been recent complaints about out of town peddlers taking advantage of folks trying to sign up for their new energy program. City leaders said peddlers are legal, but are not allowed to solicit after 7 p.m. and they must show credentials. You're asked to call police or the city with any further complaints.
