Tolono Weather Alert Changes

Tolono Info: We have received feedback requesting that weather alerts for warnings and watches be separated out to give more options for residents to choose what they are alerted on.  Residents who have previously subscribed to “Weather Alerts” will still receive alerts for warnings without any additional steps needed.  However, if you would like to receive alerts for watches and advisories that impact our area, please log into your account and opt-in to the new “Weather Alerts – Watches” category.   If you have not yet signed up for the Tolono Alert system, you can create your free account by going here:

Champaign County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey

Residents are invited to complete a short online survey regarding perceptions and ideas about certain potential hazards that may impact you and your community.  The survey includes questions about preferred methods for reducing the risks and losses associated with these hazards.

The questionnaire should be completed by an adult, preferably the head of household.

Your responses to the survey will be valued as public input during the plan update process of the Champaign County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.

This survey will be closed on March 16th, 2020.

To complete the survey, please use this link:


Champaign County needs AT LEAST 507 more applicants. Applicants must go through a background check, so applying as soon as possible is important in order to be cleared prior to applicant selection which has already begun.

Getting an accurate count for the census is very important, particularly for small communities, as each resident NOT counted results in approximately $1,800 in federal funds LOST for your community that could have been used towards schools, roads, hospitals, etc.

New Electric Aggregation Rate To Be Lower for Residents

News Release,

Tolono residents who participate in the village’s Municipal Electric Aggregation program will see their electric rate drop from 4.88 cents per kilowatthour to 4.584 cents, a decrease of 6 percent, beginning with meter readings in April. The village won the new rate, submitted by Homefield Energy of Collinsville, in competitive bidding by four major electric suppliers. The new rate will continue through June 2022.

Homefield in February will send information to village residents and eligible small businesses about the program, including no-cost ways to opt out for those who wish not to participate. Enrollment is automatic, and eligible participants will not need to do anything to be enrolled. Residents who receive their electricity from other suppliers will not be enrolled. Ameren, which operates facilities to distribute electricity within the village, will also mail information to participating residents.

Village of Tolono Trustees implemented electric aggregation in November 2018 to provide a competitive choice in electric supply and prices to Tolono residents. Under the program the board adopted, residents are not obligated to participate. They can opt out at any time and at no cost by contacting the supplier.
Customers will continue to receive only one bill from Ameren, which will include the electricity, transmission, and other supply-related charges are in the new rate. Ameren will continue to handle calls related to billing and service problems.

Additional information may be obtained by visiting or by calling MidAmerican Energy at 1-800-342-3346 or Homefield Energy at 866-694-1262 toll free.
