The hearing for a controversial 115 kV power line that is proposed to run along U.S. Highway 71 and east on Hubbard County Road 18 has been pulled from the Oct. 28 meeting schedule.


Called the Potato Lake line, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission was scheduled to hear arguments for and against the proposal at its St. Paul headquarters that day.

Instead a tentative meeting has been rescheduled for Nov. 9, according to Great River Energy spokesperson Lori Buffington.
