NEW LONDON, Mo. | Representatives of the Grain Belt Express project said Tuesday morning that they are standing down from making in-person visits to area landowners because of the fight to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus.
The action came less than 24 hours after Krista Mann, director of renewable development, said during a conference call on Monday morning with the Ralls County Commission that Invenergy, the company that owns Grain Belt, would continue to call on landowners in an effort get rights-of-way approval for the project.
Mann said on Tuesday the company reversed course and would not make in-person visits to landowners or county courthouses during the period of social distancing urged by the Centers for Disease Control and an order issued over the weekend by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson.
