ROCKTON, Illinois: Rock Energy Cooperative filed suit this week against the village of Rockton, IL, arguing that the village does not have the authority to acquire Rock Energy's electric and natural gas distribution systems. The village, acting on authorization from a April 2005 referendum, claims it has the power to obtain those systems and issue bonds to pay for the acquisition. Rock Energy argues that the referendum is unlawful and, despite its passage, cannot grant legal authority for the village's actions.[1]
