Iowa Utilities Board Members, 

Please rethink the decision to schedule the Summit hearing for October. Many farmers are concerned about their ability to attend because of their obligations during the harvest season. The board surely understands that the fall months are some of the busiest for anyone involved in agriculture. 

Like many, I agree with the Farm Bureau who requested a July 2023 hearing date for the Summit project.
