Mellen Enbridge Land Deal

This  aerial photo shows the 5.58-acre parcel, outlined in red, that Mellen is selling to Enbridge Energy Co. for  its rerouted Line 5 pipeline. The county on Thursday cleared the way for the sale that will bring Mellen $1 million and the county $500,000.

The city of Mellen was cleared Thursday to sell a portion of land to Enbridge Energy Co. for as much as $5 million as the company seeks a new route for its controversial Pipeline 5.

The County Board’s 13-8 decision came after 90 minutes of public comment in which speakers overwhelmingly favored denying the sale or at least postponing it in order to have more public input.
