• EXPLANATION OF HIGH ELECTRIC BILLS

January 2014 saw electricity prices soar to near all-time highs due to the
extreme and extended cold weather coupled with natural gas prices increasing

 

nearly 20 times the rate it was in early December. Natural gas fuels most generators in New York State and that resulted in record levels for

 

electricity prices.

The cold weather also caused a new record to be set in New York State for 
winter peaking load for electricity.

We are not alone, as these conditions also affected the Mid-west and the
whole Northeast.

While we know these electric bills are shocking, it would have been much 
worse if our joint action agency, where we purchase our supplemental power,

 

hadn't been pro-active in securing some lower pricing which saved the Municipal members of New York about 39% or close to $7 million.

We expect with the return of more normal winter temperatures and the 
lowering of natural gas prices during the first week of February that our

 

bills will begin to return to more normal levels.

Village Historical Painting
Village of Frankfort Historical Painting
By Jim Parker
 

Frankfort-New York-Painting Celebrating 150 Years

            The painting depicts the Village when the Erie Canal, west Shore Railroad, the Match Factory, and the Balloon Farm were all booming.

            Carlotta Meyer was setting world records in her chemical balloons, the matches made in Frankfort were being shipped worldwide, over 400 canal boats were passing through town every 24 hours and the railroad was building a major repair facility on the east end of the Village.

            Brick buildings were replacing earlier wooden ones. New homes and churches were going up. Dirt roads were being paved and the citizens were prospering.

            From the early Palatine German settlers in the 1720s the population became more ethnic with Irish, Italian, and polish arriving to build the new Erie Canal, the railroads, and the newly developing agricultural tool factories.

            It was a pleasure to return the Village with its key industries and people to this earlier time.
