Controversy and curiosity have prompted a public hearing on a proposed biomass, gas and electric plant in Tallahassee Monday night.
The plant would be located on Florida State University property near Innovation Park in Southwest Tallahassee.
Many citizens expressed concerns about the plant being so close to schools during last week's Leon County School Board meeting ... but a representative from the Department of Environmental Protection says the department spent months reviewing the plant proposal.
Anyone interested in learning about the plant can go to the public meeting.
Leon County Commissioner Bill Proctor arranged for the public meeting. He says, "The vice president of Biomass to come down, a team of his scientists will come down to share and introduce the project with the public. From this meeting we are going to allow for the public to ask questions."
The meeting will be held at the Old Amtrak Building on Railroad Avenue at 6:30 Monday night.
