PSC hearing held at Truman State

IMG_4719The Missouri Public Service Commission hosted the last public hearing for the Mark Twain Transmission Project yesterday, Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. at Truman State’s Student Union Building Activities Room.

Several Kirksville residents and landowners expressed concerns about the Transmission Project and the effect it would have on the local community. Representatives from Ameren Transmission Company of Illinois — the Ameren subsidiary overseeing the project — were present to listen to concerns and list the project’s benefits.

Based on input from concerned citizens at the four hearings, the Public Service Commission will make a decision during the following months whether Ameren Transmission will receive permission, or a certificate of convenience, to proceed with the project.
