The DeWitt County Board Thursday night approved a measure to go to referendum for the aggregation of electricity in unincorporated areas of the County.
Board Chair David Newberg explains this was tried a few years ago, however, failed. He says this time around they've approved a company to work with, and it will cost the taxpayers nothing.
The referendum will be on the ballot for the November election. Newberg indicates the City of Clinton along with numerous other entities across the state have had this in place for many years.
