The City of Waupaca recently received a $1,300 grant from American Transmission Co’s Community Planning Program to replace trees lost during last summer’s severe storms. The Community Planting Program provides financial support to eligible cities, villages, towns, counties, and tribes in ATC’s service area for planting projects on public property, outside transmission line rights-of-way. American Transmission Co. is a Wisconsin-based company that owns and operates the electric transmission system in portions of the upper Midwest. ATC accepts applications from July 1st through September 30th, and award recipients are selected and notified by the end of the year.
