The Hernando County Fla., Commission has delayed making a formal decision on Freedom Energy Inc.’s $20 million waste-to-energy project proposal following questions from two new commission members and changes to the financing plan.
The commission is now expected to make a decision in late January 2017.
Tampa Bay Times has more details:
Faced with a freshly drawn contract, a new wrinkle in the financing plan and serious questions from the two new commission members, the Hernando County Commission decided this week to delay a formal decision on a proposed waste-to-energy project until the new year.
They did agree that the county should conduct its own feasibility study on the plan before considering whether to approve a contract with Freedom Energy Inc., the selected bidder on the project to turn the county's municipal waste into energy-producing pellets for the next 20 years.
