The Missouri Public Service Commission will hold local public hearings this week in Cameron, St. Joseph and Hamilton for a case filed by Grain Belt Express Clean Line.

Grain Belt is seeking a certificate to construct, own, operate, and maintain a high-voltage, direct current transmission line and associated facilities in Buchanan and seven other Missouri counties. Approximately 206 miles of the line would cross the state from Kansas and then proceed into Illinois and Indiana.

One of the hearings will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Cameron Community Center, 219 Ashland Ave., in Cameron. A second hearing that day is set for 6 p.m. at the Moila Shriners Ballroom, 701 North Noyes Blvd., in St. Joseph.

On Thursday, the PSC will hold a third and final Northwest Missouri hearing at the Hamilton Community Arts Theatre on East Penney Drive in Hamilton.
