It’s not over yet.
The Wisconsin Public Service Commission’s final public hearings on the American Transmission Co. power line proposal are this month.
Whether you choose to speak or not, your presence will matter.
Undoubtedly, everyone’s tired and frustrated by the long process of fighting this extremely costly and unnecessary boondoggle. It’s been years now. But it probably still occupies your mind. And you’d still like to do something.
For those who feel strongly about this 125-mile swath of 17-story powerlines and the irreparable damage it will cause to our farms, property values, tourism, the environment and our pocketbooks, it is important to attend:
• Lancaster, Wis.: 2 and 6 p.m. June 25, Youth & Agriculture Auditorium, Grant County Fairgrounds.
• Dodgeville, Wis.: 2 and 6 p.m. June 27, Dodger Bowl.
These hearings are partly the result of the strong and well-reasoned public opposition to this project.
Remember, individuals don’t have to speak or state an opinion, but a large turnout is certain to have an impact.
