Ona Commission Does Not Like ATC Plan
The Onalaska Plan Commission doesn't like it and neither does mayor Joe Chilsen. They are talking about the Badger Coulee transmission line that could go directly through the city. Chilsen says the main reason is easy.
The American Transmission Company has proposed several routes for the Badger Coulee line that would connect to the CapX2020 line substation near Briggs Road south of Holmen and cross the city of Onalaska heading east toward West Salem and the Interstate 90 corridor. The Commission recently approved a resolution to make their feelings public.
