Regulators To Have Hearing In LaCrosse

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Corporation Commission will hold
a second public hearing Wednesday in LaCrosse about ITC Great
Plains' plans to build a transmission line from Spearville to Hays.

The 7 p.m. hearing at the LaCrosse City Auditorium is about the
345-kilovolt line the utility wants to build. The KCC said no new
information will be presented.

The hearing is the second on the issue and is necessary because
ITC overlooked 17 landowners when it sent out notices for the May
14 hearing.

State law requires all landowners within 660 feet of the
proposed line to receive notice of the intent to build. The notices
originally were sent April 21. This will give landowners a chance
to voice their views.
