A Kirksville-based citizens’ group has scheduled three special public meetings concerning a proposed electric transmission line through northeast Missouri.

Neighbors United announced there will be open question and answer sessions this Thursday, April 23 at the Heartland Ozark Lodge and Steakhouse in Newark, next Monday, April 27 at the United Methodist Church in Palmyra and April 30th at Bethel Christian Church. All three meetings start at 7 p.m.

The meetings are about Ameren Illinois’ proposed Mark Twain Transmission Line, a hundred-mile high voltage line that would run from the Iowa border to Palmyra.

The stated goal of Neighbors United is to protect landowners’ rights and to stop the project.
