At a school board meeting Tuesday the Leon County School Board mentioned their concern about a proposed biomass plant near schools. However, the school board says it will not take an official position
Officials want to leave the decision making up to the City of Tallahassee and they trust the city will do what's right. One school board member, Maggie Lewis Butler, says she will be speaking out against the plant on behalf of children and education.
Maggie Lewis-Butler, a Leon County School Board member said, "I think the focus on our children is definitely important because it's the health, the safety, and well-being of our children."
On January 28th, there will be public hearing on the proposed Biomass Plant at the Tallahassee City Chambers.
