RICL meeting is Monday in Mendota

MENDOTA — The Illinois Commerce Commission has scheduled a second public forum to gather comments on the proposal from Rock Island Clean Line (RICL) to construct, operate and maintain a transmission line. The forum will begin at 7 p.m. Monday in the Mendota High School Gym, 152 N. 4453rd Rd. or 152 East U.S. Highway 52, Mendota.

People who signed up to provide comments at the initial public forum, but did not have a chance to speak will be given the opportunity to make comments first. Additional speakers will be given an opportunity to provide public comments if time allows.

Rock Island Clean Line LLC submitted a petition with the ICC Oct. 10, 2012 to act as a transmission public utility and to construct, operate and maintain a 500 mile overhead High Voltage Direct Current transmission line.

Oral and written comments will be accepted at the meeting. Comments may also be submitted through the ICC website, www.icc.illinois.gov/docket/comment, or by calling 1-800-524-0795.

The docket for the case is 12-0560.
