Tallahassee residents upset about a proposed biomass plant aren't taking a night off from voicing their concerns.
Monday night we told you that about a hundred people showed up to a public meeting about the plant.
Tuesday night, a handful of residents came to the city commission meeting to speak against the biomass plant that's expected to be built near Florida State University's Innovation Park, a residential area and four schools.
Mayor John Marks explained the state owns that property.
"We will take a look at that and all the context that we have and make sure that that location is an appropriate location and that decision has to be made by a number of individuals not including the city of Tallahassee but others... that was not our decision," says Marks.
"I don't believe for one minute that the city of Tallahassee has no authority or little to do with this type of project," says Stephanie Jackson, a long time resident of Tallahassee who doesn't want the biomass plant to be built on the designated property.
The city commission set up public hearings dealing with the plant for December 10th and January 28th.
