Free light bulbs being offered

The City of Red Bud, through partnership with the Illinois Municipal Electric Agency (IMEA), is giving away free 9 Watt LED light bulbs.

IMEA has purchased 40,929 bulbs through their electric efficiency program and has distributed them to the member communities based on their electric load. The City of Red Bud has received approximately 450 bulbs.

The bulbs are available to residential customers of the City of Red Bud electric utility and will be distributed on a first come first served basis. They can be picked up at city hall anytime Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Since quantities are limited, only two bulbs per customer will be distributed.

If anyone has any additional questions, they are encouraged to call City Superintendent Josh Eckart at 618-282-3339.
