Herkimer County next up for power line proposal

By SPENCER DAVIDSON

HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - After Oneida County escaped a lengthy proposal to distribute power lines through its borders, Herkimer County may be next in line for a similar battle.

The State Public Service Commission has announced that it is asking power companies to create proposals for a new power line, that would cut through Herkimer County on its way downstate to Frazier, NY.

Next Era Energy, a company out of Florida, has already announced a proposal. Representatives traveled to Herkimer, Thursday, to introduce legislators to the proposal.

Herkimer County legislators said that they are willing to listen, but not ready to accept a new power line just yet.
