("L&L"), d/b/a Grizzly Disposal and Recycling, filed an Application for Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity ("Application") with the Montana Public Service Commission ("Commission"). The Application seeks authority for a Class D License, to allow L&L to operate between all points and places within Missoula County, Montana, to a lawful disposal site. The Commission issued Procedural Order 7769, which established a variety of procedural and substantive requirements for this docket. PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Commission will conduct a public hearing on L&L's Petition. The public hearing will commence on March 15, 2021, at 1:30 P.M. The hearing will be conducted with all parties, witnesses, counsel, Commissioners and staff appearing remotely via Zoom. The Commission's website (http://psc.mt.gov) will have an audio-only live stream. The Commission will provide opportunity for public comment at the beginning of each hearing day. Members of the public wishing to comment on the hearing must leave a telephone message at the Commission's toll-free number at 800-646-6150. A Consumer Assistance Representative will return your call. You need to call the Commission's toll-free number by 4:30 p.m. on March 11, 2021, to ensure there is sufficient time for a Consumer Assistance Representative to return your call. When your call is returned, you will need to provide your name; the docket number of 2020.12.121; specify that you wish to provide public comment prior to the start of the hearing; your phone number; and your email address. You will be given an identifier, such as "Commenter 1, 2", etc. This identifier will be how you are recognized to provide public comment during the hearing. You will be emailed the meeting participation information the morning of the hearing. Once you have provided public comment at the hearing, you will no longer be able to participate. You may stay in the hearing, or you may leave and continue to listen in on the Commission's live stream. The hearing will continue from day to day, as necessary. The hearing is for the purpose of receiving evidence (testimony and exhibits) addressing L&L's Application. Testimony submitted at the hearing is subject to examination. The Commission finds that exigent circumstances necessitate a remote hearing in this matter based on Executive Order Nos. 2-2020 and 3-2020 issued by the Governor of the State of Montana, and by various directives issued by the Governor implementing those Orders. See Directive Implementing Executive Orders 2-2020 and 3-2020 and providing guidance for the phased reopening of Montana and establishing conditions for Phase One (April 22, 2020). For instance, the General Business Reopening Guidelines require health assessments for all employees at the beginning of each shift, physical distancing of 6 feet, and for common areas that cannot maintain proper social distancing to be closed. Directive Implementing Executive Orders 2-2020 and 3-2020 and providing guidance for the phased reopening of Montana and establishing conditions for Phase One, at 4-5, Appendix A at 4. Because the Commission is unable to anticipate the level of public participation at the hearing in this matter or to provide space for all parties to maintain proper social distancing, it is impossible to guarantee compliance with this component of the directive. Accordingly, it will be infeasible for the Commission to arrange for an in-person hearing in this matter. A copy of the filing is publicly available online at the Commission's website (http://psc.mt.gov) under Docket No. 2020.12.121. On March 20, 2020, the Commission issued a Notice of Operational Changes in Response to Coronavirus ("Notice"). Under the "Office Closed to Public" section of the Notice, the Commission outlined a temporary change for office closure during business hours. A copy of the filing is not currently available at the Commission's business office. A copy of the filing may also be available at the office of Montana Consumer Counsel ("MCC"), which represents consumer interests before the Commission, 111 North Last Chance Gulch, Suite 1B, Helena, MT, (406) 444-2771. MCC should be contacted to inquire of any operational changes due to coronavirus. Interested parties can register on the Commission's website to be added to the service list for notice of filings in this docket (select "EDDI", create ePass account, and, under "Watch List" tab, enter Docket No. 2020.12.121).
