BROWN COUNTY, Wis. (WFRV) - It appears a gasification plant proposed to be built in Green Bay isn't a done deal just yet.
The city council voted Tuesday night to hold another public hearing on the issue to gather facts, even though they have already approved a conditional use permit to Oneida Seven Generations Corp., the group planning to build the facility.
The plant would process household trash into energy. But some opponents told the council they fear emissions would be harmful to both people and the environment, and they believe Oneida Seven Generations misrepresented its intentions to the council when talking about the number of emissions and height of smoke stacks at the facility.
Oneida Seven Generations has already obtained all the proper permitting to proceed with the plant. An attorney for the group said no major changes to the plans have occurred.
The council has not yet set a date for the public hearing.
