Residents don't want power lines installed nearby
By Anna Carrera
PARIS -- People in Edgar County hope Ameren won't build a power line near their homes. The transmission line is still in the planning stages, but a consultant is recommending the proposed route go through Moultrie and Coles counties, not Douglas and Piatt. Edgar County may also be on the route. State regulators plan to make a final decision by the first week of March.
