A public hearing on where to place a power line in Wauwatosa has been postponed by the state Public Service Commission.
Tosa residents and intervening parties, including the city and a local group called People Friendly Power, will likely get their chance to speak to the commission about the Western Milwaukee County Electric Reliability Project in late November, rather than mid-September.
The change gives the city more time to look into alternative routes and question American Transmission Company on the routes ATC has proposed, City Attorney Alan Kesner said Tuesday.
"The sense of urgency that we felt three weeks ago has diminished to some extent," Kesner said.
The postponement came as a result of unfinished land negotiations between We Energies and Milwaukee County.
