PSC approves need for nuke plants

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The public's opportunity to give the Levy County Commission their opinion on the proposed Progress Energy two-unit nuclear plant near Inglis will come at an informational hearing at 7 p.m. on August 7 in the Levy County Courthouse courtroom.

The hearing, required as part of the plant's application process, would be the only one held by the Commission.

County Attorney Anne Brown told the Commission in its regular meeting on July 8 that the meeting with representatives of the state Department of Environmental Protection and Progress Energy on hand, is "to have you gather information to give the state."

The deadline for holding the meeting is August 11, Brown told the board as she also presented them with a 7-page list of deadlines to be met in the site application process.

The meeting has been set for the evening, not only to accommodate a conflict with Commissioner Nancy Bell's schedule, but as Commissioner Lilly Rooks, said, "it's important to have at night" for the convenience of folks who must work during the day.
