Give PUC your input on coal project

July 19, 2011
The Journal

To the editor:

FYI concerning what may or may not be a sound fiscal policy. You decide!

The Public Utilities Commission is appointed by the (previous) mayor to oversee city utility functions. It was decided by them to invest between $24 and $28 million to convert boiler #4 from fas to a coal electrical generation system. Environmentally sound or environmentally quiestionable?

In addition, our PUC has alread spent in excess of $200,000 to have an outside agency write proposals for the project to the EPA so it can move forward on the project.

Perhaps some local citizens might like to contact the board members listed below to express and opinion, remembering that supposedly the PUC is a public utility. The current members are:

Susan Fix - 359-7275; David Lynn - 354-8104; Norman Melville - 359-4740; William Steinke - 354-3506; William Swann - 354-5633.

Since they do represent us, perhaps some input on the matter would be appreciated.
