Officials at Ameren said environmental regulations are behind the planned closure of the Meredosia and Hutsonville energy centers.
The shutdown, which is expected to occur by the end of the year, will result in the elimination of 90 positions, but company officials said they hope to move the employees to other jobs.
“We are working to provide alternative employment opportunities and reassignments within the Ameren Energy Resource company for many of the 22 management and 68 union-represented employees affected by these decisions,” said AER President and Chief Executive Officer Steven R. Sullivan. “It is my sincere hope that any employee desiring a reassignment opportunity can be accommodated. We will work hard to achieve this objective.”
