Public Service Commission Hearing Likely Moving To Mobile

Public Service Commission Hearing Likely Moving To Mobile

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL -

The company building an oil pipeline near Mobile’s water supply is applying for another project near the city’s waterfront.  The first step is approval by the Public Service Commission.  Initially the hearing was going to be held in Montgomery.  City officials say they’ve gotten the PSC to agree to move the hearing to Mobile.

That hearing is tentatively set for October 28th at 1pm at the Government Plaza Auditorium.  Mobile City Clerk Lisa Lambert says the members of the PSC need to check to make sure that date work.  If not the 28th the members will likely pick another day to hold the hearing locally.  A spokesman for the PSC says nothing has changed yet and the hearing is still set for October 30th in Montgomery. 

Critics of the application process argue it’s impossible to get local input when public hearings are held long distances from where the projects will happen.  This project is to replace an existing pipeline.
