CASS COUNTY | Regulators join appeal
The Missouri Public Service Commission has joined with Aquila Inc. in appealing a court decision that could lead to the dismantling of a $140 million power plant in Cass County.
A Missouri appeals court panel ruled against Aquila, which built the South Harper power plant near Peculiar without zoning approval. The commission approved the plant after it was built.
But the appeals court decision March 4 said the commission had exceeded its authority. The case now could be reheard by the appeals court or go to the Missouri Supreme Court. Read more

The Missouri Public Service Commissioners are not elected by the people, but are appointed by the Governor. Their interest lie with the utility companies and not with the people. That is why the county, at the present, has the authority to oversee zoning to keep HEAVY INDUSTRIAL plants for being built in neighbors. That authority has always been with the county and should stay with the county.
This proposed law cannot be made retroactive. There are State and Federal laws that prohibit this path.
