The following filings have been made with the Commission. The filings are listed in ascending order within each docket classification.

1. First Energy

Take notice that on June 18, 2003, the Lake County, Ohio Auditor and the Lake County, Ohio Board of Revision (Auditor and Board of Revision) submitted a request for a ruling on the appropriate accounting for the reactor building complex at First Energy's Perry Plant. The Auditor and Board of Revision contend that the majority of the costs of the reactor building complex should have been classified to 18 CFR part 101, Account 321, Structures and Improvements, and not to 18 CFR part 101, Account 322, Reactor Plant Equipment. The Auditor and the Board of Revision explain that classification to the former account would result in the costs being taxed as real property by Lake County, while classification to the latter account would result in the costs being taxed as personal property by the State of Ohio.
