Wisconsin court upholds approval of transmission line through Town of Holland
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin appeals court has upheld the Public Service Commission's approval of a major transmission line in western Wisconsin.
Wisconsin Public Radio reports that the town of Holland in La Crosse County sued the commission in 2015, alleging it didn't follow state laws when evaluating the Badger-Coulee transmission line.
A circuit court ruled in favor of the commission last year. An appellate judge upheld that decision Wednesday.
Kaya Freiman is a spokeswoman for American Transmission Company, one of the owners of the transmission line project. She says the company is happy with the outcome and hopes the line will be in service by the end of the year.
Town Clerk Marilyn Pedretti says the town board will meet June 13 to consider an appeal.
