The waste-to-energy behemoth in Chester that welcomes anyone’s trash and converts it to steam that runs turbines for electric production has found a new customer and needs to tweak a few things to make it easy to get their new fuel source to the incinerator.
In order for that to happen, Chester City Council must say it’s okay. The city’s planning commission said it’s not okay earlier this month. Could we have a situation where two city agencies are at odds with each other? Based on reports that city council isn’t expected to vote on the new tweaks, it appears so. They probably need more time to study the proposal. We do a lot of studying in Chester.
Down the road, the Monroe Energy refinery has already met with 20 Chester folks to go over their plans to run an oil pipeline through the city to connect Eddystone with Trainer. Honestly, I don’t recall an announcement for the Chester meeting. I certainly didn’t get a press release to share with you. But, at least 20 people knew about it. I wonder what they concluded?
