The Midway City Council passed a height restriction ordinance in Tuesday’s meeting. It was done after a vote taken by the Heber Light and Power board last month approved a project that would install high power transmission lines through the Heber Valley.  Carolyn Murray has this:

Midway Mayor, Celeste Johnson told KPCW the City passed the ordinance hoping it would give them more say in the future of the project.

The Heber Light and Power is considering entering into an energy contract with a small Nuclear Power plant, not yet built, in Corvallis, Oregon.  Heber Light and Power is an Interlocal, community owned power company providing energy to the Heber Valley. With projected downscaling and decommissioning of coal plants, the community is looking for replacement energy sources. They’re considering a power contract with the Nuclear Power Company, NuScale.
