RE: Case #13-T-0235
Dear Judge Casutto,
We are writing in desperation. You have received correspondence from Town
Supervisors, NY State Senators, nearly all the landowners along the Potter and Centerport
Road portion of this proposed route, landowners along the Tanner Road portion including
landowners off Route 34. In fact, landowners from nearly every portion of this expansion
project have written or spoken in opposition to this project.
Having just received correspondence from the Power Companies that they intend to enter
our land, and proceed with the expansion, leaves us at a loss as to how to gain
representation in this matter.
We do not understand why, when there are alternatives to this route, our objections do
not seem to matter. We would greatly appreciate an explanation as to why our protests
are being ignored. I fear the name "Public Service" commission is a misnomer. I cannot
for the life of me see how allowing this expansion to move forward through our
properties, simply to improve the profits of the Power Companies involved, is a "Public
Service." There is a power plant near by, in mothballs, that could produce all the
electricity needed now and in the future.
We are enclosing the petition and original correspondence with the hope that you will
reconsider. We ask you to please, put a stop to this transgression, and give the taxpayers
involved in this matter relief from the continued assault on our properties, our persons,
and our peace of mind.

RE: Case #13-T-0235
Dear Madam,
We are writing to make you aware that the Land Owners, and those with properties which
are adjacent to the proposed "Auburn Transmission Line Project" Alternate Route #1,
oppose the expansion of the existing transmission towers and all encroachments on or
near our properties.
We believe that we have already made sufficient sacrifices for the public good by living
with the existing structures. We object to the further devaluation of our properties, the
additional loss of use of our properties within the expanded right of way, and the
corresponding increase in health risks associated with such transmission lines.
Please find attached a petition containing the names, addresses, and signatures of those
land owners and affected parties within the Potter Road section of the proposed Projects
Alternate Route # 1. The signatories do protest any enlargement of the existing
transmission lines along the aforementioned route. We expect our wishes to be respected
and request written affirmation that this route will not be used.

Sincerely,

Scott & Dana Estelle
