Jefferson College Receives 34-Foot Bucket Truck From Ameren Missouri


Ameren Missouri recently donated a 2003 bucket truck valued at $17,000 to Jefferson College for use in the Buildings and Grounds Department to replace parking lot lights, perform maintenance and repairs to building exteriors, and hang banners and signage. It marks the second vehicle donation of its kind by the electric company to the college.

The 34-foot truck will help provide a safe, well-lit campus for students, faculty/staff, and the community. It replaces the college’s existing bucket truck, donated by Ameren in 1992, that is over 30 years old and is no longer road worthy.

Founded in 1902, Union Electric—now known as Ameren Missouri — is the state’s largest electric utility. Ameren Missouri provides electric service to approximately 1.2 million customers across central and eastern Missouri, including the greater St. Louis area.  Ameren Missouri pro-vides electric service to 63 counties and 508 towns. More than half (53 percent) of Ameren Missouri’s elec¬tric customers are located in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
