City reverses decision on biomass plant
August 30, 2012, Montpelier, VT – City officials have reversed course one week after rejecting plans to build a new biomass plant in Montpelier.
According to a WCAX.com report, with just a few slight tweaks, city councilors voted Wednesday night to pursue the new 20-million dollar heating plant in conjunction with the state. Most call the agreement a win-win.
After a brief one-issue special meeting, Montpelier's city council voted to build the new, larger and greener facility.
