Bushnell, Illinois is a small town nestled between farmland in west central Illinois. While we are small we are mighty! Bushnell has the small-town charm that makes you feel good no matter your day! We have manufacturing plants that make items from dog food, after market Jeep parts, potato chips, rivets and screws to the best hammers in the country! You will not find a more patriotic town in the state! Bushnell cherishes and values our service members from all branches of the military from every battle they have fought to protect our freedom. Often you can drive through out town guided by American Flags that are set to honor our Veteran's near and far. A breathtaking sight for all! We Welcome you to come visit - we are a great place to live, work and shop!!
The City of Bushnell would like to ask our utility customers to try and conserve their gas consumption as safely as possibly through the weekend.
We understand that the weather is brutal and our furnaces are running on overtime to keep up with the cold.
We are asking you to reduce your gas consumption as safely as possible for the coming days until the cold snap breaks
(between now and Saturday, February 20th). The natural gas grid continues to deteriorate.
Natural gas processing plants are losing power which in turn reduces the amount of natural gas available to pipelines serving the ENTIRE MIDWEST
For those who have already made adjustments you are making a difference. Keep up the good work.
