The informational meeting for Block Grain Belt Express Missouri will be at 3 p-m Saturday at the Monroe City Nutrition Center. The goal is to inform land owners of concerns and to empower land owners to help block Grain Belt Express from getting eminent domain authority. The organization says over 700 have attended meetings in six other counties affected by the proposal.

Opponents of the proposed above ground line express concerns about property values… health and other quality of life issues.

Block Grain Belt Express is asking the Missouri Public Service Commission to deny public utility status to Clean Line Energy Partners. They also advocate burying the lines along a highway right of way.
