CINCINNATI CITY COUNCIL UNANIMOUSLY ENDORSES CINERGY

 CINCINNATI, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cincinnati Gas & Electric Co. said today that its merger with PSI Resources, Inc. to form CINergy Corp. has been endorsed by the Cincinnati City Council in a unanimous vote.
 In its resolution, the city council said that it supports the merger because CINergy:
 -- "is committed to customer service, community involvement and economic development;"
 -- "will bring low cost service and keep rate increases reasonable;"
 -- "is in the best interests of the citizens of Cincinnati."
 "We are delighted that the Cincinnati City Council members have given this strong endorsement to CINergy," said Jackson H. Randolph, chairman, president and chief executive officer of CG&E. "We believe that the merger will create a 'win-win' situation for all those who have a stake in our companies, and we appreciate the fact that the council has recognized the many benefits to our customers and community."
 The resolution follows a similar endorsement of CINergy by the Ohio State Conference of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
