Public Service Commission of Wisconsin decision in PSC Docket 5-DR-109
We disagree With the Public Service Commission’s decision today on the Milwaukee Streetcar matter and will recommend an appeal.
We disagree With the Public Service Commission’s decision today on the Milwaukee Streetcar matter and will recommend an appeal. As the City has argued, the issue of Who pays the utilities’ relocation or modification costs associated With the construction of the Streetcar is an issue for the Circuit Court, not the Commission, to decide.
The utilities’ obligation to relocate or modify their facilities at their expense is derived from state law, not a municipal regulation that the Commission may invalidate. Therefore, the Commission’s decision does not end the controversy over Whether the utilities must pay the costs they might incur to modify or relocate their own facilities so as not to obstruct the public’s use of the public right-of-Way.
