Enbridge Energy Line Three Discussions in St. Cloud Have Been Canceled at the Request of the City.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The state Public Utilities Commission has canceled public hearings scheduled this week in St. Cloud on Enbridge Energy's proposal to replace its aging Line 3 crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.

The PUC says the city of St. Cloud advised the commission of "logistical and safety issues" related to many events being held Thursday at River's Edge Convention Center.

The commission is reviewing options for rescheduling the two hearings in St. Cloud. Last week, protesters cut short a hearing in Duluth on the Line 3 project.

Tribal and environmental groups say the project threatens pristine waters where wild rice grows.

Enbridge and its supporters say Line 3 is a needed piece of infrastructure, and that replacing it will make it safer while creating jobs.

Snow Returns to Central Minnesota Forecast Thursday Night

You've felt the temperature dip this week to truly fall weather, now you can expect an early taste of winter in Central Minnesota.

St. Cloud State University Meteorology Professor Bob Weisman says we can expect up to two inches of snow in Central Minnesota Thursday night into Friday. He adds there is some uncertainty about the snow, since the storm will intensify and could move slower than expected across Minnesota.

The highest odds for snow at the end of the week is Northern Minnesota, including the Arrowhead, Iron Range and Duluth, with up to 3-6 inches of accumulation.

Weisman says we have a 50-50 chance of the first wintery white snow in St. Cloud.

St. Cloud City Council Votes To Be A "Welcoming Community" For Refugees

St. Cloud City Council Votes To Be A

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - The St. Cloud City Council has passed a resolution proclaiming it's a "welcoming community" after one council member proposed a moratorium on refugee resettlement. The council chambers were full of supporters who cheered, as well as others that did not feel the same.

The resolution passed Monday night on a 5-1 vote. The member who voted against the resolution was Jeff Johnson. Last week, Johnson said he wanted to limit refugee resettlement until the city gets more information about the number of people moving to St. Cloud and the possible cost to taxpayers for providing services.

Johnson planned to bring up his proposal at a council meeting next month. Monday's resolution was introduced by Jeff Goerger to counter his fellow councilman. The St. Cloud Times reports Goerger said it's important to show that "this one guy" doesn't represent the "voice of the people of our community."
