CRRA plans to buy plant...

...plans to buy the plant, regardless of the interest level of the five town consortium?!?

From Luther Turmelle at the NHR:

The board of directors of the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority approved a plan Thursday under which it would buy a trash-to-energy plant in Wallingford with or without the participation of the five communities currently served by the plant.

The decision by the authority’s board comes even as two of the five communities — North Haven and Wallingford — appear to be throwing their support behind a counter-offer made by the New Jersey company that is responsible for the facility’s day-to-day operations. The plant, which is owned by CRRA and operated by Covanta Energy, serves Cheshire, Hamden, Meriden, North Haven and Wallingford.

“We’re going to buy the plant, with or without the MSAs (municipal service agreements, which commit the towns to provide specified minimums in terms of tons of trash),” said Thomas Kirk, president of the CRRA.

Strange. Very, very strange.
