Due to terrible winter weather - as there has been at other area bodies of water - there has been a massive fish kill at Citizens Lake.  According to IDNR fish biologist Ken Russell we probably lost all large fish.  Because of EPA regulations, there is no way of disposing of the dead fish and the IDNR rep says there is no recourse but to let them decompose naturally. If you have questions, you may call Susan Trevor at City Hall - 309-734-2141.

The City of Monmouth, with assistance from an Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation grant and an Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity rebate, recently completed another energy efficiency project.  Previously, we upgraded to energy efficient lighting within our City Hall and both Fire Stations. This project was to install energy efficient outdoor lighting at our facilities.  Included in this project were LED outside lighting at both water treatment buildings, Central Park (Square), Citizens Lake campground security and pool lights, Street Department building, airport hangar and fuel area lights, both Fire Stations and the Police Department.  Cost of the project was $54,477 and we will receive a $25,100 grant from Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation and a rebate estimated at $21,500.49, leaving a total of $7,876.51 as our cost. With an annual savings of $4,993.20, this project will have a 1.5 year payback.
