Easements – Consumers Energy Company.
Consumers Energy Company is seeking four easements from the City of Muskegon for its
Muskegon-Cobb #1 and #2 line relocation projects. The project objective is to relocate five High
Voltage Distribution lines that currently exist in the wetlands area East of Consumers Energy’s
Cobb Generation Plant, to a location out of a wetlands area. This is being done to facilitate
access, which could reduce the size and duration of the outages, should an event in the area
damage these lines. Access is currently limited, due to changing environmental restrictions.
William Carlson and Pete from Consumers Energy Company explained the request and answered
questions. This will be voted on at the March 8th City Commission Meeting.
Amendment to the City Code of Ordinances – Medical Marihuana Regulation and
Mike Franzak explained the item. Discussion was held and comments were heard. This will be
discussed further at the Public Hearing on the March 8th City Commission Meeting.
Motion by Commissioner Carter, second by Commissioner Shepherd to adjourn at 7:06
