Possible last meeting for N. Dakota PSC chairman

BISMARCK — The chairman of North Dakota’s Public Service Commission may have presided over his last meeting.

Tony Clark is resigning soon. He is waiting to be sworn in to his new job as a member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in Washington.

North Dakota’s Public Service Commission met Wednesday. The regulatory board doesn’t have another meeting scheduled for three weeks.

The 40-year-old Clark was first elected to the North Dakota commission in 2000. He’s finishing his second six-year term. He was not running for re-election this year.

Clark had two items on his agenda Wednesday — a power line siting permit and a grain elevator closing in Walhalla.

Archer Daniels Midland is shutting down its Walhalla ethanol factory and it doesn't need the grain storage permit any more.
