Second Rock Island Clean Line Forum In Mendota

Posted by wlpo on October 24, 2013

If you couldn’t get your two cents in at last month’s forum about the proposed Rock Island Clean Line, you have another chance.

The Illinois Commerce Commission is hosting a second public forum about the proposed transmission lines to go from Iowa to Morris while passing by towns like LaMoille and Mendota along the way.  An overflow crowd turned out for last month’s forum at Mendota High School.

Next Monday night’s forum starts at 7 inside the Mendota High School gym.  A company out of Texas is proposing the high-voltage line promising to power more than a million homes in the Midwest with clean renewable energy.  A very vocal opposition group called “Block RICL” says a lot of good farmland will be taken away by the transmission line.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
