WILLARD, Utah (AP) -- Rocky Mountain Power has gotten the last conditional-use permit it needs to build a high-voltage power line through Box Elder County.

The Willard City Council issued the permit last week.

Margaret Oler, a Rocky Mountain Power spokeswoman, says construction is to start early next year and should be done by late 2010.

Some Box Elder residents have been critical of Rocky Mountain Power, saying they feel the company hasn't worked with homeowners and cities on the 345-kilovolt power transmission line.

Rocky Mountain Power is still negotiating with landowners along the proposed route of the project for use of their land.
