ANSTED, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Last week, the town of Ansted announced that they would be hosting a public hearing on December 5th for a proposed electric substation that would be built in the Victor area by Appalachian Power, but that hearing will no longer happen this year.
Officials with the town of Ansted have announced that the public hearing has been canceled due to scheduling conflicts with Appalachian Power and the West Virginia Public Service Commission.
AEP currently has plans to construct a 69kv electric substation in Victor, WV on property fronting U.S. Rt. 60 and currently owned by Richard & Carol Patton. This parcel is located generally across U.S. Rt 60 from the Victor, WV Post Office and abuts the easterly side of Hundley Drive.
Although no official date has been given, officials say that the hearing is set to be rescheduled for sometime in early 2023.
