Top ATC Exec Made Half a Million

A Town of Middleton resident’s persistence about open records resulted in the disclosure that American Transmission Co. pays its top executive $510,000 annually.

Cynthia Richson, an attorney and a member of the town’s plan commission, became curious about what ATC pays its top executives after not finding it in annual reports the privately-held public utility files with the Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC).

The information took on greater importance as ATC continued its route selection process for the Badger-Coulee transmission that would stretch from the La Crosse area to a substation in the town along USH 14, she said.

“It’s important that the public have all the information their entitled so there’s transparency in the process … as these agencies are involved in decisions that have a great impact,” Richson said.
