WILLARD -- Rocky Mountain Power received a temporary restraining order against the city of Willard allowing construction to continue of a high-voltage power line.

Rocky Mountain Power took the city to court after a City Council decision last week that canceled a conditional-use permit for a high-voltage power line.

The City Council felt the transmission line would put people in danger and decrease property values.

The order allows Rocky Mountain Power to continue work in Willard, specifically, construction of access roads, temporary drainage and run-off controls and pads at pole locations.

The temporary restraining order will be in place until a preliminary injunction hearing scheduled in late July.

The order also contains a provision that requires both parties to work in good faith to reach a comprehensive settlement agreement.
