PSC To Hold Local Public Hearing In Washington In Ameren Missouri Case
JEFFERSON CITY---The Missouri Public Service Commission will hold a local public hearing in Washington on July 10 in a certificate of convenience and necessity case filed by Union Electric Company d/b/a Ameren Missouri. The local public hearing schedule appears below.
July 10—Washington. Knights of Columbus Hall, Lower Level, 1121 Columbus Lane. The local public hearing will begin at 5:00 p.m. with the taking of testimony from the public.
In January, Ameren Missouri filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking a certificate of convenience and necessity from the Commission to expand the boundaries of its Labadie Energy Center to permit the construction and operation of a utility waste landfill. Ameren Missouri has asked the Commission to approve its application by December 31, 2013, to allow it to begin construction of the landfill in 2014.
The Commission held a local public hearing in this case on June 25, 2013 in Union. Attendance at the hearing was heavy and many interested persons were unable to testify. Therefore, the Commission is scheduling a second local public hearing on July 10 in Washington to give more people an opportunity to testify.
This local public hearing will be held in a facility which meets the accessibility requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Any person who needs additional accommodations to participate in the local public hearing should call the Public Service Commission’s hotline at 1-800-392-4211 (voice) or Relay Missouri at 711 before the hearing.
