During the scheduled informational forums, maps of the proposed route will be available to review, and New York State Department of Public Service representatives will provide an overview of the Commission’s certification process. EOW will then present a brief summary of the NY Project. Members of the public will then have an opportunity to ask questions about the process and the application pending before the Commission. Each informational forum will be followed by a public statement hearing where all those wishing to comment on EOW’s request will have an opportunity to make a statement on the record before the ALJs.
It is not necessary to make an appointment in advance, or present written material to speak at a hearing. Persons will be called to speak after completing a request card. Each public statement hearing will be held open a minimum of thirty minutes and will be kept open until everyone wishing to speak has been heard or other reasonable arrangements have been made to include their comments in the record. A verbatim transcript of each public statement hearing will be made for inclusion in the record of this proceeding.
