CAPX2020 Funds

The Alma City Council has approved a procedure for choosing projects to be funded with money from environmental impact fees paid by power companies running a high-voltage transmission line on the south side of the community.

A transmission line project dubbed CAPX2020 intends to cross the Mississippi River on the south side of Alma near Dairyland Power Cooperative and follow an existing power line corridor through Buffalo County into Trempealeau County and will end up in Holmen.
 Alma received a one-time payment of $167,637 and a 2013 annual payment of $11,374, according to Mayor Jim Wilkie.
The larger one-time payment is supposed to be used for environmental programs unless otherwise authorized by the Public Service Commission,according toWilkie
