Lack of decision by County Area Plan Commission may result in courtroom appearance in near future PDF Print E-mail

    Lack of action by the Scott County Area Plan Commission (APC) on Wednesday night, October 14, on a requested modification of terms attached to recent approval of a company's Development Plan (DP) may cause the APC to make a trip to a courtroom.
    Representatives of Liberty Green Renewables L.L.C. and their attorney, John Kraft of New Albany, attended the October 14 APC meeting. Larry Ott and Terrance Naulty had come to be available should any member of the APC have questions about the company. Members of a local citizens' group fighting Liberty Green were also present. Three of them, Jeff Cox, Pat Berna and Alice Stackhouse, were allowed to provide comments about their data on emissions they said such plants create.
    That group was not successful in preventing the APC from approving Liberty Green's DP on August 26. In that presentation, the APC was told how the company plans to burn wood chips that will generate steam which will power a turbine that will create electricity. The process is considered better for the environment because its fuel, trees, are considered a renewable fuel as opposed to coal, the “black gold” on which the Midwest depends for generating much of its electrical power.
