Malta Economic Development Grant
Malta was recently awarded an Economic Development Grand grant from the State of Illinois in the amount of $100,000.00 to repair a storm water line that runs north of Malta. In February Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DECO) welcomed Malta as an active participant in the process of working toward the accomplishment of the economic development goals of the State of Illinois and DCEO. DCEO is the lead state agency responsible for improving Illinois' competitiveness in the global economy.
What this means for Malta is a storm water line that has been in poor condition for 20 years or more will be repaired. Repair of the line will help with the spring flooding issues Malta has seen in the past. The Village Board has been working extensively on drainage for many years and has made great strides in village drainage. The Board continues to work on connecting to a drainage line that runs west through the Prairie Spring Subdivision and is in the process of securing easements through property owners. With the repair of the north drainage line and the possibility of drainage west Official believe Malta's long time issues with drainage could see major improvements.
Malta Electric Aggregation
Malta currently is under contract for Residential Electric service through aggregation. We have had several phone calls from residents saying they are getting calls from electric supplier wanting them to switch their service. Currently Malta is under contract with Verde Energy. Our contract will be up in June 2014. Malta Officials plan to continue to aggregate electric service for village residents through Progressive Energy. Progressive Energy representatives will be at the April 9, 2014 meeting to explain aggregation and the process of securing the best rate for the Village. Since the electricity is purchased in bulk residents will save more money. ComEd will still deliver the electricity through their power lines and issue bills. As with the last contract residents will also have the opportunity to opt out of the Malta Aggregation plan and use other service providers. If you have questions attend the April 9th meeting or call Village Hall and speak with Debbie Lang, Village Comptroller.
Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt April 19th 9:00 a.m. Lions Park.
