Randolph County Residents sign Petition to Oppose Grain Belt Express

More than 400 residents of Randolph County, Missouri, signed a petition to oppose the Grain Belt Express high-power transmission line.  The petition was presented to the Randolph County Commission, but the Commission did not rescind its support for the line.  Commissioners believe that the Grain Belt Express Clean Line could bring jobs and more than $800,000 in property taxes annually to Randolph County.

The Grain Belt Express Clean Line requires easements through private property for its transmission line, and could use eminent domain to acquire those easements if it is granted public utility status.  Residents say that the power lines would disrupt farming operations, lower property values, and potentially cause health issues.  Read more at http://www.columbiatribune.com/news/local/residents-question-randolph-county-officials-support-of-grain-belt-express/article_02c8f47a-dd26-11e3-8676-10604b9f7e7c.html.
