Edgar Co., IL. (ECWd) -
The Appellate Court DENIED an appeal of the Illinois Commerce Commission decision on the Illinois Rivers Transmission line project - Ameren Power Line in Edgar County.
The official word is that the line location, based on most efficient transmission location, that was presented by residents in Clark County to the ICC is "it."
The Order from the Fourth Appellate Court is located here.
In their decision, the Court affirmed a previous ruling that:
"the transmission line route segment from the Kansas substation to the
Indiana state line through Edgar County is resolved and in light of
the reasons given, [ECCDP] can not reasonably expect the
Commission to vacate that part of this proceeding affecting Edgar
County and grant rehearing."
As far as the appeal, the Court stated the appeal was not properly before the Court (pg 35):
Initially, we address two procedural issues presented by ECCDP's appeal. First,
the record fails to reflect that the denial of ECCDP's request to intervene is properly before this
court on review.
and on page 39 stated due process rights were not violated:
"The due process rights of ECCDP's members were not violated."
