PUBLIC FORUM: Happy with direction being taken by officials
The North American Power industry is experiencing one of the biggest shake-ups in its history. Abundant natural gas, new environmental rules, aging infrastructure, plant retirements and an increasing portfolio of renewable energy projects are pulling the industry in new directions.
FRANKLIN: Working to keep jobs here
I vividly remember the picket line outside the city building in August 2011, where about 100 people stood against accepting Duke’s proposal to close the Logansport Municipal Utilities plant and stood for keeping local jobs, which prompted the Utility Service Board to keep looking at options.
Appeal filed in dismissed suit against city
The plaintiff in a dismissed lawsuit against the Logansport mayor and city council claiming an abuse of power regarding the city’s power plant project has filed for an appeal with the Indiana Court of Appeals.
PUBLIC FORUM: Minimize our risk before making bet
A Logansport letter-writer calls a local proposal to generate energy from refuse-derived fuels a risky gamble.
KITCHELL: Waste-to-energy a big waste of time
Had all of Logansport attended the Indiana Society of Professional Journalists Awards ceremony last month in Indianapolis, we all would have learned that the No. 1 editorial written in the state in the past year was about a subject that sounds familiar to Logansport residents.
More than $24,000 needed for city’s lawyers in lawsuit
Lawyers’ fees for the recently dismissed lawsuit filed against Logansport Mayor Ted Franklin and City Council have amounted to more than $24,000 for the city to date, according to invoices filed by the attorneys representing the city.
PUBLIC FORUM: Direction is the best option presented
Logansport is facing a serious problem with our current coal-fired generation plant. New EPA regulations will require millions of dollars to upgrade or shut down. The city and LMU have been exploring options to provide a solution to this looming problem.
Alt-power talks at a standstill
Representatives from wholesale electricity providers invited to discuss power alternatives were missing from Tuesday’s Logansport Utility Service Board meeting after city officials determined it would be best to wait until current negotiations with the proposed waste-to-energy plant’s developer have concluded.
Officials talking trash
As the amount of garbage Logansport produces in one year would barely be enough to fuel the city’s proposed new power plant for one day, those involved in the project say they’re confident enough trash can be acquired from elsewhere and are working on agreements that guarantee so.
SIDEBAR: Kokomo said no to waste-to-energy
Kokomo has in the past considered a similar option to the one currently being negotiated by Logansport and the proposed power plant’s developer, but ultimately determined the amount of trash required, among other factors, would not provide a suitable outcome.
